Property Value

Type: System.String

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.
