Hello Sahoo,

Standard objects (workflow tasks, standard tasks, and so on) are identified with an eight-digit number. The last five digits of this number are assigned automatically by the system. The prefix number is used for the first three digits of this number.


To guarantee unique identification, define a unique prefix number for each system and client.


The prefix number applies for the following objects:

  • Standard tasks
  • Task groups
  • Rules

Please note that this prefix is not common for all the clients.

For e.g., If the workflow definition is saved with ‘WS90001062’, then it means that 900 is the Prefix and is common for all the workflow definitions created in that client.

The prefix numbers must be unique for each client of instance to prevent possibilities of overwriting workflows between systems Environment
