You would need to develop your custom field or use an add-on like Adaptivist ScriptRunner or Power Scripts. 

Could you help me with a sample script as I have no programming knowledge

It depends you are on Cloud or Server and what plugin you are going to use.

I am using Jira Server with Jira Suite Utilities as add-on plugin

I am not much familiar with the add-on. But as far as I know you can not add scripts there. 

Hi Satish,

What is your purpose for this field? How would this differ from the Jira issue key which already generates a unique number for each issue?

... and would remain a lot more functional and useful than an arbitrary unique number...

While thinking about that, have a think about the actual requirement - why would this be useful to your end users?
