Description

Dear Redmine Team,
How can I add a custom auto number field for a project:
Ex: Project 1, issue 1.
This is a custom field only but has an increasing & auto suggest number per project. We can change this number.
I think this will be a custom field and it will show a suggestion number.
Of course, it may be dupplicated if two issues are created in the same time or we move issue across projects.
I know my opinion is related to #5765, #282, #538, #1926, #3843, #7873, #8039

Interesting, but how/when will the custom field number get incremented?

Hi,
It will get the largest number in project and plus one.
I think it just a default value and it can be change
or
if some one move a issue to another project, it will default get a newest number.
Sorry for my English

Thats great! I just created my planned Inventory module almost entirely by using Custom fields / Dedicated tracker / Dedicated statuses etc.
Only thing I'm missing is the auto-increment functionality, which will solve (almost) the rest.
Btw it can be done by new datatype or by adding "[x] Auti increment" checkbox to Integer datatype.
And of course, "[x] Unique" will be helpfull - goint to check tickets for this.

Hi All,
Take a look at this plugin: http://projects.andriylesyuk.com/project/redmine/issue-id

But it is still developing.

I think this plugin is wonderful.
Regards,

This is fantastic idea.
We are using additional number as a customer facing issue id, would be great if this would be maintained automatically inside redmine (now we are manually assigning the number verifying that there is no conflict...).

FYI: Redmine Serial Number Field plugin may be useful for you all.
