Property Value


The message’s time to live value.


This value is the relative duration after which the message expires, starting from the instant the message has been accepted and stored by the broker, as captured in EnqueuedTimeUtc. When not set explicitly, the assumed value is the DefaultTimeToLive for the respective queue or topic. A message-level TimeToLive value cannot be longer than the entity's DefaultTimeToLive setting and it is silently adjusted if it does. See Expiration
