Per discussion on the project Work list on 2013-03-07, document how to set the 'current value' of an auto-incrementing ID number:

http://lists.collectionspace.org/pipermail/talk_lists.collectionspace.org/2013-March/001218.html

There are two ways/times to set this:

  • At initial data loading for the id_generators table (by editing a SQL load script in the Services build tree, via a SQL INSERT request, or via a Services REST API call)

  • Later on, at any point (typically via a SQL UPDATE request)
