@darshthakkar @alchemiz Can anyone please help on this

@rjapala You can use a combination of Sequence snap and Mapper snap, as shown below


The expression used for the transformation is “P-%05d”.sprintf($value)


Thank you so much @Dheeraj

I have a doubt here like how do we get each time a new sequence should i check with execute or validate

Like every time trigger the task then should generate the sequence and update the Product_ID

This is not working in realtime like i have created trigger task for my pipeline so whenever i hit from postman to the pipeline it should generate new Product id in database.

Hi @rjapala,

Good day, here’s an sql script that will update the product_id you can use the sql server execute snap to place the script

update	yourtable
set		product_id = format(convert(int, replace(isnull(product_id,'0'),'P-','')) + 1,'P-0000#')
