Events

Introduction 

Events represent the structured data sent between actions. Events are JSON objects making them flexible and easy to read. All events are timestamped and "write-once", providing an audit trail and making them an ideal basis for calculation of key performance metrics.

Event Structure 

When an event is emitted by a Tines action, it will contain the result of the action and, if it exists, the received event. For example, the below image shows an event emitted by an action called "Type is infection". The "Type is infection" action is configured to receive events from an action called "Receive events":

❗️Important

Re‑emit Events 

It's possible to duplicate an existing event and pass it down to all receiving actions by clicking the Re‑emit button from the Action Events list or the Show Event modal window. This can be used to repeatedly test the behaviour of a receiving action with the same data.
