Input Mapping

This endpoint is used to receive data from the parent Agent, which must include an attribute containing the file path to be read.


One event is made available to this endpoint for every event received from the parent Agent. The string attributes of the output payload are named as per the properties grid.

If the properties grid is empty, the event has one string property called XMLData, containing the file contents.


If errors are encountered during the execution of this Agent they will be published on this endpoint.
