Cant send ESP32 data to Cloudant


I am trying to connect an ESP32 to the IBM Watson IoT platform and then get the information that is published to be saved in Cloudant by using the Node Red Watson IoT node connected to a Cloudant node. I can get the data to publish to Watson IoT fine without Node Red but the minute I activate Node RED the publish attempts start to fail and it tells me "Client Id was reused". Basically because the node on node red has the same credentials (that the iot platform created for me) as the board itself, it treats it like two boards with the same ID are trying to connect. The minute I delete the node on node red though everything goes back to normal and I can connect to Watson fine. I have no idea why the Node RED node suddenly causes the connection to fail.
