"Adding" a plugin ID to a plugin that currently has none. Is it possible without breaking everything?


Right now, the Key Promoter X has no plugin ID specified and I only realized this 3 years later when investigating in this IntelliJ issue with icons. Therefore, the `<name>` inside my `plugin.xml` is used to identify the plugin at the moment.

Question: What happens if I add `de.halirutan.keypromoterx` as plugin ID? Will updating and identification of my plugin fail? Is there a way to do this?

A plugin ID must be kept for whole lifetime for plugin. Changing it after publication will break update path for all existing installations.
