Increased length of surrogate keys

Hello. It appears that our surrogate keys recently increased in length by the addition of '111' at the start of all of them. For example, a course_dim id that previously had been 60000000123456 is now 11160000000123456. This led to issues with our loading the data into a local Oracle database for reporting.

 

Should we anticipate future changes of this sort? What is the best way to be informed about them before they happen.

 

Thank you.
