  • I'm new with MDS and I need help to understant what benefits MDS can bring to following solution.

    I would like to create custom solution. (in top of SharePoint 2013, but this is not relevant info)
    Application should generate unique customer id. Let say in format of 1,2,3,4,5,6.
    If latest created customer data is 4 then next customer id 5.
    There should be database table with CustomeId and CustomerName fields. This Customer table is located in CustomApplication Database on SQL Server 2012.

  • Hi Kenny,

    We will need bit more information than this if you have something complex. Unless that's the case the requirement can be implement as below -

    1. Add Entity and provide required information while check in option, create code value

    2. Try entering data and the code gets auto- generated on its own,as shown 

    For More information/admin option check -

    Let me know if this helps!
