ISA controll number is a unique identification number. In general by writing some UDF we can generate this number.

Example code :

public String UniqNumber(String name,Container container)


String val;

Object obj = container.getGlobalContainer().getParameter(name);

if(obj == null)

throw new RuntimeException ("Exception due to .....");

else {

value = obj.toString();

return val;



This code generates the unique control number.

We can give input to this is constant, this is generally the signal number, now in your case 856.
