What is the max character length of a UUID?

Section 3 of RFC4122 provides the formal definition of UUID string representations. It’s 36 characters (32 hex digits + 4 dashes).

Sounds like you need to figure out where the invalid 60-char IDs are coming from and decide 1) if you want to accept them, and 2) what the max length of those IDs might be based on whatever API is used to generate them.
