Is it possible to add letters to an ID? e.g. SR-2033489


Zoe Bezner (151) | asked Mar 23, 7:01 a.m.

 Can an information e.g SR= SystemRequirmeent be directly added to the ID?

I assume that it is DNG related question

 Hi Zoe,


ID is generated by system and can not be modified. You can create a custom attribute that will contain letters and digits.

Hi Zoe,

There is a page on Hazel Woodcocks blog illustrating the results of Bartosz's suggestion


It does not look very good in DNG but does look good when properly concatenated during RPE publishing

Hopefully we will get elegant in-tool concatenated presentation of this solution in the future.

One of the annoying limitations of this seemingly useful solution I have found is that it seems you cannot specify a default value for the attribute on a per-artifact basis.

It would be good if you could define a Prefix atttribute and then give it the default value 'SR-' when used on System Requirements and 'TR-' when used on Technical Requirements etc.

But you can only give the attribute itself a default value so for Prefix default values to work usefully it seems you need to create a separate attribute for each artifact type.
