Abstract submission counter reset


I am completely new to INDICO. We setup a conference in the CERN Indico implementation.

As we are new, we run some test, submitting abstracts/papers that were deleted.

How can I reset the abstract ID to zero in order to account only the real submissions?



Hi, that’s not really possible in the indico interface.

However as the service managers we can do that directly in the database if you really want to reset the counter.

Please contact indico-support@cern.ch with the link to your event. Also, make sure that you deleted all abstracts and contributions (those share their IDs). We can then reset the ID counter for you.

Hello @ThiefMaster

I sent the email with the information requested.

Thanks you very much.
