This Endpoint is used to receive data from the parent Agent.
Events received from the parent Agent are processed and the result events are made available to the Endpoint. These events are the same as the input events unless the Agent is configured to execute a Stored Procedure, in which case the output will match the payload of the Stored Procedure.
If errors are encountered during the execution of this Agent they will be published on this Endpoint.
If the events passed to the Action Agent require further processing in the Data Stream, and the Action Agent is configured to execute a Stored Procedure, split the Data Stream beforehand with a Broadcast Transformation.
