Preserving Request ID field values
You might want to preserve the Request ID field values of your BMC Remedy AR System requests for the following reasons:
- Backward compatibility — You might have cross-references that see requests by the Request ID field value.
- History — The Request ID field values were created with the old format, and there is no need for change.
- Design — Your BMC Remedy AR System design requires periodic change to the Request ID field. For example, use the current year as a prefix for that field.
- No data — No requests were submitted, so there are no Request ID fields to convert.
