=head1 NAME

Workflow::Persister::RandomId - Persister to generate random ID

=head1 VERSION

This documentation describes version 1.53 of this package

=head1 SYNOPSIS

 <persister
     name="MyPersister"
     id_length="16"
 ...

=head1 DESCRIPTION

Implementation for any persister to generate a random ID string. You
can specify the length using the 'id_length' parameter, but normally
the default (8 characters) is sufficient.

=head2 METHODS

=head3 new

Instantiates a Workflow::Persister::RandomId object, this object can generate
randon Id's based on the 'id_length' parameter provided. This parameter defaults
to 8.

=head3 pre_fetch_id

L</pre_fetch_id> can then be used to generate/retrieve a random ID, generated
adhering to the length specified in the constructor call.

=head3 post_fetch_id

This method is unimplemented at this time, please see the TODO.

=head1 TODO

=over

=item * Implement L</post_fetch_id>
