Description

Posts a notification to either the engine or the host. Notifications can be used to easily integrate the engine into other solutions.

Fields

scope

Who can observe the notification.

A notification can be posted within a scope. The scope determines what processes can observe it. If the scope is engine wide, only the posting instance of the engine can observe the notification. This is particularly useful for chaining triggers to performing actions.

If the scope is host wide, every process on the host can observe the notification.

notification

The notification to post.

The notification should be formatted in reverse domain name format to avoid namespace collisions.

context

Context to associate with notification.
