Short Description

TokenGather copies each incoming token from any input port to all connected output ports. If input metadata differs from output metadata, copying based on field names is used. This component is typically used to collect all tokens from several parallel execution branches and send them to one unified output.

Details

The TokenGather component receives incoming tokens from any input port and copies them to all connected output ports - each incoming token is copied to all output ports. Input ports and output ports can have any metadata. Copying from input metadata to output metadata is based on field names - a field value is moved to output token if and only if output token has a field with an identical name.
