Subject Providing a namespace field when action is initialized
Date Tue, 05 Nov 2019 05:03:45 GMT
Hi, whiskers.
I want to discuss adding a new field `namespace` in the `/init` API [1]
that initializes the action.

The action runtime does not know the namespace information when the action
is initialized.
In some cases, this namespace information can be useful.

- Initializing a monitoring tool such as APM (Application Performance
- Custom docker actions that require a namespace for initialization

If the namespace is not provided at action init time, runtimes that need a
namespace should check the namespace every time when action is run.

I'd like to have your views on this proposal

  "value": {
    "namespace": String, <- this `namespace` field will be added
    "name" : String,
    "main" : String,
    "code" : String,
    "binary": Boolean,
    "env": Map[String, String]
