Retrieves the Id of the thread that initiated the operation.
def get_originator_thread_id() -> int: ...
This method can be called within certain events to retrieve the Id of the thread that initiated the operation. If the query fails, this method returns 0.
Please note that thread Ids are not unique, and may be reused by different threads over time.
Note: This method can only be called within events, and must be called in the same thread that the event was originally fired on. However, it must not be called within events that work with opened files, such as on_read_file and on_write_file, since such events can be initiated by system components (e.g., the cache manager, memory manager, etc.). If applications need the information this method returns during such events, they may do the following:
- Call this method within the on_create_file or on_open_file event.
- Store the information somewhere, and store a reference to it in the event's HandleContext parameter.
- In a later event, access the information via the reference stored in HandleContext.
