Is it possible to get JIRA to create sequential numbers for a particular field?

Hi, Is it possible to get JIRA to create quote numbers sequentially? I want to create quotes arising from the Issues in JIRA and each time I create a quote I want the next sequential number?

You'll need to find or write a field to provide these quote-numbers

Jira does create issues in a simple sequence in a project, but if you raise something you don't need, delete issues or move them, then you can't re-use the empty/dead numbers.

The last time I was with someone who was using Jira for something similar, they decided that they didn't actually care that much - having sequential numbers turned out to be completely unnecessary because all they really needed was "unique number". It was nice that you could rely on "higher number = created later than lower number" as well.
