ah - so I misunderstood - I thought you want a permutation of a given
6-digit number

It's still not quite clear to me what role 'id' is playing ... so let's
check this one;
and Steven, who is maybe more experienced than I am will help us ufrther

>>> import random, string
>>> def random_number(id):
...     characters = list(string.ascii_lowercase +
...                       string.ascii_uppercase +
...                       string.digits)
...     coll_rand = []
...     for i in range(6):
...         random.shuffle(characters)
...         coll_rand.append(characters[0])
...     return ''.join(coll_rand)
...
>>> id = 5
>>> print (random_number(id))
puMHCr
>>>
