Sequence Configuration allows business users to configure the automatic generation of the sequence numbers on each individual object (Case, Request, Complaint, etc.).
The Sequencing mechanism has the following features:
- The period for sequencing can be configured (month, week, etc.)
- The sequence reset start date can be specified
- A prefix can be added to the automated numbers.
Select Sequence Configuration. The list of existing configurations opens.
Add a Sequence
1.To add a sequence, click +.
The Add/Edit Sequence window opens.
2. Specify the Sequence Name and Description. If enabled, an automatic sequence number will be generated for each new object of that type.The new sequence is shown in the list.
3. Click the Settings icon for the new sequence.
The Sequence Part window opens. (Sequence Part = how the sequence number will be generated and what each part will be).
4. Click +. The Add/Edit Sequence Part window opens.
5. Add the name of the first sequence part and then select from the drop-down, to specify the Sequence part type (Sequence Part Type = this is the definition of what type of functionality that will be used for this field. For example, is this part of the sequence a ‘Date’ or is it ‘Text’.)
There are 5 different types for defining each part of the sequence number. You can use all, or only few of them.
Autoincrement is usually used at the end of the sequence number and defines the pattern for incrementing sequence numbers. For example a 6 digit sequence starting with ‘1’ = ‘000001’, which will increment by 1, so the second number in the sequence would be ‘000002’.
Enter the starting number and the increment size (how much the next sequence number will be incremented by from the previous one). Number length defines how many digits will be used for this sequence part (value that will be incremented on each new created object).
Check if skipped sequence values (usually skipped by some error in creating object) should be reused on the next created object.
Enter an Execution condition to define specific cases for which this sequence part should be included or not (ex., Only for Requests of some specific type). SPEL language is used for expressing these conditions.
For example: enter ‘requestType == ‘Appeal’ for this specific sequence to be invoked when an request with the requestType = Appeal is created.
Use the Object Property, that also requires SPEL expression, to specify conditions for different object types.
For example: The following expression caseType == ‘Gov’ ? ‘G’ : ‘NG’ means that it will add letter “G” as a part of the Case sequence number, if the Case type = “Gov”. If not, it will add “NG”.
This Sequence Part Type will add UUID (universally unique identifier) to the Object Sequence number
Use Date to set the Date format that will be added as part of the object sequence number.
If the Date/Time of the object creation should be included in the Object Sequence number, specify the format. For example: “yyyyMMdd” will add the current date to the sequence number, as set of 8 digits “20210506”.
Use ARBITRARY_TEXT to add plain text (String) to the Sequence number, as defined in the “Arbitrary text” field. For example, an underscore ( _ ) or hyphen ( – ).
See example below to add a sequence for an object of type Complaint.
- Add new Sequence
- Click + on the Sequence Configuration table.
- Enter the Sequence Name and Description fields (any String can be used).
- Check the Sequence Enabled check-box.
Note: You can make changes later by clicking on the Edit icon for the Sequence Name.
The new Sequence is added to the Sequence Configuration table.
- Configure Sequence Parts.
- Click + to add first Sequence Part.
- Sequence Part 1 – Current Date at the beginning of the Complaint Sequence.
- Select Date as a Sequence Part Type.
- Fill in all fields. Define the format of the Date (Ex. yyyyMMdd will show the date in format: 20210516).
- Include an Execution Condition if you want this part to be implemented only for some specific Complaint objects (not for all).
- Ex: priority == ‘High’ (means Date will be added as a first Sequence part only for Complaints that are High Priority).
- Sequence Part 2 – Add “-“ after the Date.
- Choose ARBITRARY_TEXT as a type of the second sequence part.
- In the Arbitrary text field add whatever string you want to appear in the Sequence name, for example, “-“.
- Sequence Part 3 – Autoincrement part
- Choose AUTOINCREMENT for the third sequence part.
- Select the number that will be the starting number for the first Complaint created, for example, 100.
- Select increment size.
- Checking the “Reuse skipped sequence values” – if a Complaint object is not properly created due to some error , this number will not be lost, the next created Complaint will use the un-used number.
- Set a Number length to set a maximum for the autoincremented numbers.
The Sequence Configuration Table shows the sequence parts.
The first Complaint created will have the following sequence number: 20210507_000100, the second will have 20210507_000101 (if created on the date of 05/07/2021)
Use the Settings icon for the Autoincrement sequence part is to specify when the increment reset will happen. The sequence can be reset by year or by month, for example. Number reset is optional. Skip this if not needed.
To reset autoincrement sequence each year on a specific date, click the + sign and enter the reset start date and time. Check the Repeat reset check box and select how often this reset should happen. For example, October 1st at 12am each year.
