Endpoint Name from IEndpointInstance

We’re looking to email an admin if there is a critical error on an endpoint. In OnCriticalError(ICriticalErrorContext context) we wanted to get the endpoint name for our email message (e.g. ‘endpoint1 has crashed’). I can’t seem to find any documentation on how to get the endpoint name from the instance of IEndpointInstance that we have access to in the ProgramService class.


The endpoint instance doesn’t currently have the name available to it but you should be able to do the following:

    var endpointName = "MyEndpoint";
    var endpointConfig = new EndpointConfiguration(endpointName);

    endpointConfig.DefineCriticalErrorAction(c => MyCriticalActionHandler(endpointName, c));

    //or if you don't have access to the name, eg when using the NSB host
    endpointConfig.DefineCriticalErrorAction(c => MyCriticalActionHandler(endpointConfig.GetSettings().EndpointName(), c));

static Task MyCriticalActionHandler(string endpointName, ICriticalErrorContext context)
    //send email that includes endpointName

    //decide what to do, in this example Stop the endpoint
    return context.Stop();

Does this work for you?



At that point I can just define the string at the class level and access it directly from the OnCriticalError class. Maybe you guys will add it one day to the endpointinstance.

Yes that would work as well :+1:

I’ll bring the addition of the name on the instance up with the team.
