Shopware 6 lets you use the following variables in the pattern:

  • {n} – an incrementing number that follows the specified start number;
  • {date} – the current date in the international format: YYYY-MM-DD;
  • {date_dmy} – a custom date format that incorporates additional variables:
    • Y = Year, 
    • y = Year in two digits, 
    • M = Month, 
    • m = Month as number, 
    • D = Day, 
    • d = Day as number.

Let’s assume that the start number is 13 and the date is June 4, 2021. The following patterns transform as follows:

  • Order{n}-{date} – Order13-2021-06-04
  • Order{n}-{date_d.m.Y} – Order13-04.06.2021
  • Order{n}-{date_Y-M-D} – Order13-2021-JUN-FRI
  • Order{n}_{date_dmy} – Order13_050621
