Seeking Suggestions on Generating Project Codes in JIRA

In our current PM software, we have the ability to have a Project Code generated that adheres to the following rules:


99 - Year project created - For example, all project this year start with 19, last year with 18

EN/IN - EN indicates project for an external Customer and IN indicates a project for an Internal project

9999 - Sequential counter indicating the count of projects.  Resets at beginning of year

A sample project number would be....

19EN0203 => Implies the project was created in 2019 for an external Customer and it is the 203rd project this year


I need a mechanism to emulate this functionality in Jira but do not see any plug-ins that offer this.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The only way to do this in Jira is to train your admins to adhere to a scheme.

Note that you can't use the one you've defined above - Jira project codes must start with a letter
