    OTM will automatically generate a service provider ID for you based on (I think) the BNG type of LOCATION_XID_NO_CORP or LOCATION_XID_WITH CORP. If you want, you could change the definition of that to generate a different sequence number that meets your requirement.

    Either way, I dont think that the service provider ID will be generated until you hit Finished i.e. you commit the data. I dont think there a way of generating that number in the standard application just when the user hits the "New" button.

      thank you for your reply....
      i've some more doubts.
      can we create a BN for new objects?or we've to use the existing BNcontexts and BN generator only?
      is there any possiblity of changing the BN rule for existing objects?

        You can create new BN rules in the domain in which you are working and I think they will take precendence over the BN rules in the PUBLIC domain.

        Also, you can use BNG to create refnums so you have quite a lot of flexibility on what you can do with this functionality.

          we created two screens say x and y using the service provider screen set and its manager layout.can we create BN for those two screens with separate BNs?
