"deleteInput"

The JSON Edge API "deleteInput" action deletes an input in FairCom Edge

Abstract

The "deleteInput" action removes a previously created input definition as long as no output definitions are using it. A failure response lists the output definitions that prevent the input definition from being deleted.

The "deleteInput" action removes a previously created input definition as long as no output definitions are using it. A failure response lists the output definitions that prevent the input definition from being deleted.

Inputs collect tags from a data source and insert them into an integration table.

Note

A tag is named data, such as a temperature with a value of 70 . In JSON, a tag is a JSON property, such as "temperature": 70. In a SQL table, a tag is a data field, such as a field named temperature with a value of 70.
