This procedure allows you to define a change ID format for the selected project. This includes prefixes, suffixes, and the ability to increment by any provided number. It is critical that the Digits (number of digits including leading zeros) as well as the Increment is established. If either of these numbers are missing, the ID will not generate as expected. The hierarchy path delimiter (typically a period, or ".") must not be used in either the prefix or suffix.
In the Project Details panel, click the Change Admin tab.
By default, the last selected project appears in the Project ellipsis. To change the project, click the Project ellipses and select the required project.
(Optional) Type a required Prefix.
The prefix is added to the beginning of the change ID.
(Optional) Type a digit in Next ID Base.
The numbering of the change ID starts with this digit.
Type a digit in Digits (Max 20).
This is the length of the change ID.
(Optional) Type a required Suffix.
The change ID ends with this suffix.
Type a digit in Increment.
The change ID increments by this digit.
Click SAVE. The change ID appears in the Change ID Example (Max 40) field.
