User Functions

User Functions provide the capability to execute custom business rules by writing code in the most popular languages, and automatically deploying the code without provisioning servers, or building an API, or maintaining the infrastructure.

User Functions are divided into two main parts, called Functions and Triggers.

  • The Function refers to the piece of code that performs a specific task or action in response to an event triggered by a trigger
  • A Trigger is a component that is capable of invoking the Functions from an event source. Triggers work as listeners to a particular endpoint. They enable the capturing of events and messages from different sources and redirects them to one or more Functions. Triggers convert incoming events to HTTP requests to asynchronously invoke all the Functions that match certain criteria.
