Regenerate Component ID

Table of contents

This feature allows you to regenerate the Component ID for multiple Products at a time. This can be used to "fill in gaps" in your Component ID numbering to get a sequential list.

In the example above everything went smoothly because the Component IDs that "filled in the gaps" did not exist on other items within the Project.


There is also another feature to regenerate all of the Component IDs in a Project at one time via the Component ID Format settings in the Project Editor:
