This procedure allows you to define the commitment ID format, including the prefix, suffix, 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 identified. If either digits or increment numbers are missing, the commitment ID will not generate as expected. The hierarchy path delimiter (typically a period, or ".") must not be used in either the prefix or suffix.
Commitments cannot be created if this ID format is not established.
