Unlike Backdrop's built-in auto-increment node ID, which is global and shared
by nodes belonging to all content types, serial fields are managed per entity.
For example, the serial field of an Invoice instance will generate a unique
sequential number (starting at 1, then 2, etc.) exclusively for Invoice

The allocation of serial numbers by this module is atomic. In other words,
the serial values are unique even when multiple instances of the same entity
are created simultaneously.



You can add a serial field to any type at admin/content/types -> manage fields.
In the New Field form select Serial as the type of data and label and field
name as your choice, and Save. No other settings.


Existing nodes will also get serial values when a serial field is added.
The serial token [{entity_type}:{field_name}] can be used with Paths.
All information about available tokens can be found at
admin/config/search/path/patterns page in Replacements patterns section.
