Hi Karthik,


You can accomplish by using two more attributes. 

SampleID (the attribute that is the ID) - string

Autonumber( attribute that will generate the number) - autonumber


You can setup a before commit event on the entity and use a change activity to set the value of "SampleID" to however you want it to be

$Entity/_Type + toString($Entity/AutoNumber)


Here is the link to the event handler documentation


yes it is possible.

I suggest that you take a look at the rapid developer path and the advanced module about microflow expressions.

Those will give you a good start.
