After installing, this mediator can be instantiated as follows:

  "@context": [
  "actors": [
      "@type": "SomeActor",
      "someMediator": {
        "@id": "#mediatorQueryOperation",
        "@type": "MediatorNumber",
        "field": "httpRequests",
        "type": "min",
        "ignoreErrors": true,
        "bus": { "@id": "ActorQueryOperation:_default_bus" }

Instead of MediatorNumberMin, MediatorNumberMax could also be used to resolve to the maximum value.

Config Parameters

  • bus: Identifier of the bus to mediate over.
  • field: The field name to mediate over.
  • type: The way how the index should be selected. For choosing the minimum value: 'min'. For choosing the maximum value: 'max'.
