OPCUA.RESPOND

Sends a response directly, i.e. without any Consumer, to an OPC UA service. The data to be send can be either arbitrary JSON data or a message from the outbox or Inbox. Usually this function is used to respond to a previously received request-message.

Note

A request-message must provide a requestId property within its Metadata object.
