Is it possible to force the JIRA Key number to start from a value other than 1 for a specific project?

Hello,

We have a need to force the JIRA key number to start from a value other than 1 for a specific project to align with a numbering system used externally to the tool, e.g. ABC-101 instead of ABC-1.

All other projects need to continue to start their key numbering from 1.

Is it possible to do this via admin, rather than creating (in the above example) 100 'blank' issues in the project, please?

Many thanks, Lesley

No.

You can either create 100 issues and delete them, or you can take Jira offline, change the pkey on the project table in the database and restart it.

That's it. There's nothing in the UI to do this.

Suspected that was how it would be. Thank you for the confirmation.

Hi,

It is pcounter in Project Table and not the pkey
