What does "entitySys.id" do in Simevent Blocks?
I tried it by creating an attribute named "entity.eid" in an entity generator and input "entity.eid=entitySys.id" for event action "Generate" and ran the simulation for 1000 seconds with "Period"=1.
It gave me 1001 records in Diagnostic Viewer.
Am I correct to say "entitySys.id" is the sequencer number of the entities that generated from the entity generator?
Thank you

Yes, that's it. It is the index for all of the entities generated within the model. They are useful when you are using SimEvents debugger, and you want to track a specific entity throughout the storages.
