In all examples of the API documentation,
instanceID (and other tokens) is documented as having the form
uuid:85cb9aff-005e-4edd-9739-dc9c1a829c44. The mock server also requires this format as an input.
This is no longer correct: database stores tokens without the "uuid:", and calls to the live server do not accept this format, but rather simply
Dirty tricks are needed when you want to create test cases that work both on live and mock server.
