RoleInstance.Id Property

Gets the instance identifier (ID) of the role instance.

Namespace: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.ServiceRuntime
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.ServiceRuntime (in Microsoft.WindowsAzure.ServiceRuntime.dll)

Public MustOverride Property Id As String

Property Value

Type: System.String

A String that contains the instance ID for the role instance.

The following code example shows how to retrieve the instance ID for role instances:

foreach (var role in RoleEnvironment.Roles) 
   foreach (var roleInstance in role.Value.Instances)      
      Trace.WriteLine("Role instance ID: " + roleInstance.Id, "Information");

The instance ID is unique to the application. If a role instance is stopped and has been configured to restart automatically, the restarted role instance will have the same instance ID as the stopped role instance.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
