Numbering of IDs of the entities in a workspace are not in sequence and in random order, we want to check if there is any way to start the numbering of IDs individually for each workspace.Please check this and let us know how the ID increment actually works in Octane and is there any settings to create it in sequence.
Even if IDs were to be sequential, they cannot truly serve as evidence of deletion.
Backlog items can be converted from one type to another (e.g. Defect can be converted to a feature)
Moreover, each organization may consider different scopes of sequence (Defects apart from stories, Defects to together with stories, etc).
There are better means to track entity deletion. e.g. Issue a notification (email) upon deletion. Check the general audit log for deletions, and other means.
I inquired about this issue in the past and was told the ID sequence numbers are generated in Octane as follows .
1. Octane Server Bounce
2. Number of Server Nodes
Those are the two elements that cause the strange ordering for all the ID’s in Octane.
I was told it would be best to just consider an ID as a unique identifier for an element, and focus on the Creation Date/Time for determining chronological order... but I completely agree that it would be nice to have the ID's generated in sequential order.
