Id

Specifies a unique identifier for the definition of a ribbon element. The strongly recommended naming convention is to use a period to separate the parts of the name like so: [solution identifier].[entity].[ribbon].[function].[element name]. For example: MyISV.account.form.SendToOtherSystem.Button.

Use the {!EntityLogicalName} token in the Id attribute when you define a ribbon element that will be used for multiple entities. This inserts the entity logical name into the Id value to make sure that the Id value is globally unique.

For example, if you use MyISV.{!EntityLogicalName}.form.SendToOtherSystem.Button with the account entity, the Id will be MyISV.account.form.SendToOtherSystem.Button. For the contact entity, the Id will be MyISV.contact.form.SendToOtherSystem.Button.

If you don’t set a globally unique Id value, the ribbon might not display.
