It will be very useful if Redmine could make it possible to override the default behaviour of assigning an autogenerated issue id to the new issues, if a given id is specified.

There could be a field "id" on the new issue form with that behaviour:
  • If left blank, the id will be autogenerated (as it happens now).
  • If specified, the gived id is used for the creating issue (who insert that value has obviously the responsibility to chose one which is key in the issue table, otherwise a validation error will appear).

Enabling such a feature also for the email WS API would make the transition from other issue tracking systems a lot easier, because it would permit to keep the two system issues automatically in synch.

Won't fix, the internal ids get autogenerated, period. You could use a custom field to achieve some form of synchronicity to an external system though.
