Correlations IDs are used in distributed applications to trace requests across multiple services. This library and package provides a lightweight correlation ID approach. When enabled, request headers are checked for a correlation ID from the consumer. If found, this correlation ID is attached to the Correlation Context which can be used to access the current correlation ID where it is required for logging etc.
Optionally, this correlation ID can be attached to downstream HTTP calls made via a

Known Issue with ASP.NET Core 2.2.0
It appears that a regression in the code for ASP.NET Core 2.2.0 means that setting the TraceIdentifier on the context via middleware results in the context becoming null when accessed further down in the pipeline. A fix is ready for 3.0.0 and the team plan to back-port this for the 2.2.2 release timeframe.
A workaround at this time is to disable the behaviour of updating the TraceIdentifier using the options when adding the middleware.
