Is it possible to set the starting numbers for requests & packages during install of 9.x?

We are starting to plan an installation of 9.x.  Is there a way to set the starting number sequence for requests and packages?  I didnt see anything in the server.conf file.

If you don't have any requests or packages already (fresh install) then you can probably just drop the sequences and re-create them with the starting values that you want. Or do an 'alter sequence' on them. kcrt_requests_s &
kdlv_packages_s if memory serves.

Please note that ID values under 30000 for PPM entities are reserved for seeding data, and I would strongly advise against setting your sequences to a value lower than what is the default starting values in PPM: in theory, any value below 30000 could be used for whatever reason for data included in future SPs or major releases.

 

This is especially the case for entities with seeding data such as Users, not so much for Requests and Packages as I don't see any scenario why PPM R&D would add some pre-existing requests or packages in the future ; still, better be safe than sorry.

Agreed with the suggestion of Etienne,

 

You can alter the sequence starting number, but it should not be lower then 30000. Secondly most of these IDs (below 30000) are used in the PPM code and these are hard-code in the script/code, so it better to use any number above 30000.

 

Futher, in case you alter it, then on any patching activity or upgrade this may cause any issue.
