The end of a pipeline passes
on the data to the specified output. Usually the whole event is passed by default, but
there are often options like
body to specify what data to send.
Many of these outputs support retrying:
retry: count: 3 # number of times to retry pause: 2s # pause between retries forever: false # instead of count, just keep rerying
While data is waiting to be sent in these outputs, it will be buffered until it can be sent.
NOTE the buffer is currently unbounded so watch out for possible memory exhaustion.
Most outputs can also be called as actions with
action output, with some restrictions.
server: true) make no sense as actions, and batching is
not allowed. The output is sent and the incoming event passed on unaltered. This can be used
to send events to multiple outputs.
