How can I modify item ID and reserve some IDs

2 months 3 weeks ago #77819 by grabit

I have a bis item list and some items are automatically imported from a CRM, this items have a specific item ID (e.g. 32362901).

All the previous items were small numbers but after my import and a few subsequent one, my new items (not the imported one) have a ID higher than that one but still in a "reserved array" from the CRM.

Here are my questions:
Is it a way to modify the items ID that were created within this reserved array? If yes how?
Is it a way to reserve a range of IDs for the import? Maybe by starting the next IDs above the reserved array?

Thanks for your help.

you can run this in phpmyadmin
(example is 500 million, you can set it up to 2 billion, and still have a remaining of 100 million)
ALTER TABLE PPP_content AUTO_INCREMENT = 500000000;   // Set new auto-increment to 500 million

This way all Ids below 500 million will be "reserved" ...
