I want to add field for customer number. The customer number starts from 1000.
So 1st one register shall be automatically assigned Customer Number 1001
and the second 1002 and so on.
Is this doable?
admin Accepted Answer
Easy Profile does not do this natively, but of course this is possible with a bit of code skill

Follow these steps:
- Download, Install and Enable Skeleton Plugin (you will find it at
- Open file /plugins/jsn/skeleton/skeleton.php
- remove samples functions: triggerFieldAvatarUpdate, triggerProfileUpdate
- add function like this:
public function triggerProfileUpdate($user, &$data, $changed, $isNew)
if($isNew) // Only when a user register an account
$data['here_field_alias_where_store_the_value'] = $generated_number;

this function will store in the field with alias "here_field_alias_where_store_the_value" the generated number.
Your number need to be incremented for each users, so you need to retrieve the last number stored, you can do this by using a sql query like
SELECT MAX(here_field_alias_where_store_the_value) as last FROM #__jsn_users
