Collector Node: Dynamically control collection completion at runtime

Provide a means to dynamically control completion of collections at runtime. This might be achieved by providing a FinishCollection terminal that forces a collection to complete; the message on this terminal would need an override location for the correlation path or collection name, so the node would know what collection to complete. Or it might be achieved by providing accumulators and triggers that specify collection criteria based on message content - e.g. "keep collecting until the total sum of the 'price' element in all the documents exceed 1000".

    Idea / RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this idea has been in the status of Uncommitted Candidate / Future Consideration. Whilst this idea has been in the system for quite a while, and unfortunately only with a single vote, this is not high on our current business priorities ... However it has long been our intention to cater for this use case as we appreciate the value here, and so we intend to maintain the status in this review cycle as Future Consideration.

    Hi Steve,
    Thank you for raising this RFE. We agree this would make an excellent enhancement to the functionality offered by the IIB collector node. Status of this RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
