Input Commands

Input Commands are a very powerful mechanism where you can define your own REST endpoints that will be made available for external applications to set properties and invoke methods within the workflow.

Input Commands are device specific that is to say as part of the REST URI, you will include your device id so the workflows will be run in individual devices.
