Custom fields Type Auto Number Increasing
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

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.

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.

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...).
