This unit is a Processor unit type.
This unit queries a properly formatted JSON using the JQ JSON processor.
An event comes in through the in port. The data field content is queried using the JQ expression configured in the properties.
Successful input events are enriched with a new field containing the query result, and the event is output through the out port.
If an error occurs, the input event is enriched with new fields describing the problem, and the event is sent through the error port.
