Content ID's in UCM 11g

Posted in ECM & UCM.

If you have autonumber enabled (IsAutoNumber=true) for content IDs in UCM, you will see that the content ID's increment.

Previously, in 10g, you would notice that all the content ID's are sequential without gaps. In 10g, these numbers were previously generated with a "counters table". In 11g, these are now generated from a database object called a 'sequence'. The name of this sequence is IDCSEQDOCID.

This sequence also has a cache of 200.  Every time you start up UCM it will pick up 200 values from the database and store them in memory. However, if before the 200 cached values are used up you shut down UCM or the database you will lose all those unused cache values. (If the sequential numbers are necessary to have, without any gaps, then this sequence can be redefined with the NOCACHE option).
