ConfigEntityBase isNew() method checks that id() returns '' or NULL

  final public function isNew() {
    // Configuration entity IDs are strings, and '0' is a valid ID.
    return !empty($this->enforceIsNew) || $this->id() === NULL || $this->id() === '';

but id() always returns a value so createDuplicate() is broken too

Title: Field instance isNew() method is broken » Should ConfigEntity::isNew() be based on id or uuid ?
Component: field system » configuration system

According to ConfigEntityBase, isnew() is FALSE the moment the $config_entity has a non empty id.
(or between entity_create() and save(), when enforceIsNew is TRUE)

That seems wrong to me ?

Entity does :

  public function isNew() {
    return !empty($this->enforceIsNew) || !$this->id();

That seems very much tied to a pre-D8 model where "a $node is considered new before it got saved and received a serial id in the process".

If so, I'd say the equivalent of this for ConfigEntities is the presence of a UUID, not an id, because ConfigEntities will always have an id (a machine name) ?

Bumping to the config system for feedback.

Discussed this with @Berdir and @fago.

ConfigStorageController::create() calls $entity->enforceIsNew() already.
ConfigEntityBase::isNew() should be based only on the enforceIsNew flag.

Makes sense, checking Id for config entities has no meaning as it's always manually assigned.
