Im working on a tool that includes User Id's, but those Id's are part of the user's privacy.
To counter that privacy problem, I want to generate an auto number for each user ID.
Like this for example.
ID000891 > 138732
ID000892 > 587453
Is it possible to change all user Id's to autogenerated values?
Thanks in advance,

Yes the autonumber- respectively autonumberhash-functions could change with each reload and is therefore only within a single application "really" valid. But if you for example implement it within the generation of a dimension-table-qvd of the personal-data which is ordered or you made it ordered in an extra field - it could be applied over many applications either as the to displaying field with the origin User ID as key or the origin User ID could be replaced with it per mapping.
A pure hash-function instead will always return the same output by identical input-values.
