The approach you take to set unique identifiers for documents in SharePoint is different in the new SharePoint Add-in model than it was with Full Trust Code. In a typical Full Trust Code (FTC) / Farm Solution scenario, list item event handlers running SharePoint Server-side Object Model code were used to set unique identifiers for documents and they were deployed via SharePoint Solutions.
