Ticket numbering to start at 2000

Hi,

I’ve setup a new installation of RT without migrating data from a previous installation : reason is that new queues/custom fields are defined in the new installation.

So the old installation has reached ticket number 1853.
To avoid having trouble/confusion with my external partner (to whom we are giving our ticket number for reference), I would like to start ticket numbering to 2000 or 3000.

I can’t imagine create and close 1999 tickets then use RT Schredder.
Is there another easy way to do this ?

It is using MYSQL database. Is it possible just to setup the auto_increment like described here :

It depends on what database you are using. Look for the file called
schema.Pg for postgres or schema.mysql, or whatever. You’ll see a line
that says something like:

CREATE SEQUENCE tickets_id_seq;

That’s for Postgres. I changed it to:

CREATE SEQUENCE tickets_id_seq MINVALUE 8000;

Then I initialized my database.
