Situation
Why is user getting a different Instance ID when compared to the previous scan, after moving the entire application source code(python) to a different directory?

Cause
In this case, the scanned project only includes one source code. After moving the source code to the other directory, SCA thought the code structure was changed, then generated fpr file with different Instance ID for the same issue.
