Integer Identity field with Dynamic Data Store


Does DDS provide the ability for a dataobject to have a property of type int which is an auto incrementing identity type in SQL server or equivilant?

The EPiServer.Data.Identity object is great for my internal dev use, however the data that I am storing is used on an excel report and the users need to see the unique row identifer - I could show them the GUID but its not really practical.

Is there anything built into DDS todo this or do I need to create my own identity management logic for this?

Many Thanks,

By using Identity, you have an id that you can use. Look at Identity.StoreId

Perfect! I didnt realise that StoreID was an identifier of the object within the store - I though it was the ID of the store the object belonged to! 


Many Thanks
