An action is the execution of a task by a selected app. Every app has a set of actions that are pre-defined by the app’s owner.

Example actions:

  • Google Drive: Download a file to your Drive.
  • Facebook: Post a photo to your timeline.
  • Slack: Post a message on your channel.

When creating a miix, you must specify details about the actions that the miix contains. These details are called action essentials. Action essentials describe certain aspects of an action, such as a user account or a device that will execute a task.
