Set starting Flow Run Id / Execution ID


We want to install a fresh version of Operations Orchestration Central.

We are using another System with a database in which we store the Flow Run IDs of Flow Runs to have a unique key. If the new Central starts with Flow Run Ids from the default start number we will get duplicate entries in the other system which will cause a lot of havoc.

Therefore we are looking for a way to set the starting Flow Run Id aka Execution ID in the DB in Central to a specific number. Is there a "official" configuration or a dirty hack to do this?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Kind Regards

Hi Sascha,


There isn't an official way to set the starting Run ID. You can create an Idea to add such feature in future release on the Idea Exchange portal:

I hope this information finds you well.

Hello, Carlos.

Thanks for your answer.

I will create an idea.

But I'm surprised that I'm the first person, which encountered this issue.

Is there maybe an "inofficial" way to do this? I guess that somewhere should the seed of the Execution ID or the last used Execution ID be stored. Or is this a identity column in some table? Any information is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
