Hard-coding Client Identifiers
The client identifier is a string that uniquely identifies your Broker client. The client identifier is used to:
*Identify the Broker client that published an event, described in Read-only Envelope Fields.
*Identify the recipient of a delivered event, described in Delivering Events.
*Re-connect a previously disconnected BrokerClient, described on Disconnecting and Reconnecting.
*Allow two or more Broker clients connected to the same Broker to share the same client state, described on Sharing Client State.
A client identifier cannot start with a '# 'character, nor can it contain '/' or '@' characters. See Parameter Naming Rules for complete details.
