Message Number Sequences for Notifications

I thought that I remember hearing in class or on a message board that certain ranges of message numbers are classified for certain uses and that customized messages should be in a range outside of the delivered ranges.  I cannot find this on any message board or in help or in my notes.

 

Am I remembering this correctly or have I had too much eggnog this Christmas?

Hello Beth,

Have not dig so deep towards the message numbering (thought it was random numbers choosen by developers) but if you will find anything regarding this will be very pleased to see it in this post. Or maybe you really too much enjoyed christmass:smileyhappy:?

It's not so much that some ranges are reserved, just that some numbers are already being used.  If you replace the existing messages with your own, you're bound to get unexpected results.

A simple way to manage custom messages is to use a company value for the class of all of your custom messages:

If the licensed customer is ABC, and you use the message class of "abc" with your own numbers, you won't conflict with any existing messages or future messages added by HP. 

 

This will work only in cases where you can specify the class of the message to be called (e.g. the notification engine). For format control messages, where the message must be of class "fc" you could use numbers starting with 5000 to avoid a conflict.
