Reducing the account number digits

Description

Hi guys, like in my country Nigeria, the central bank recently mandated all bank to reduce the account number digit for the both loans, saving etc. to 10 digit. i am wondering if that is implementable presently. if yes then how can one go about it and if no could you kindly take care of that in next mifos release. thanks alot for your good work all!

Hi Adam,
Just a suggestion, why not use the first 10 account digits to be sent to the bank?
for ex: 000100000169688 is an example Mifos global account ID
but if you check the account table, the account_id field is only 169688.

send your bank 0000169688 only which is the first 10 digits from the left. As you know the account ID is uniquely generated in Mifos.The first part of the global_account_num indicates the branch Id.

I work with Al Majmoua,Lebanon, and we work with banks, we only send the first 7 digits to banks.
And for our staff we created reports that convert the account_id to the full global_account_num for them to use it for working inside Mifos

Hope this would help a little

Is this still a requirement ? Or can this issue be closed/not required ? the solution given by George makes sense and this change cannot be done for to meet a specific country's requirements. Hence trying to understand if this issue needs to be worked upon ?

We will not work on this ticket because Implementation priority is Won't. I am closing this issue as 'Won't fix', it will be reopened if required.
