Action Table

An Action arising from a Task, to be applied (possibly repeatedly) by an actor (often a distribution server) to a set of target devices.

Note: To cater for multi-tenant mode, this table may contain data for multiple tenants. Access requires that the database TenantID has been set in the SQL Server connection context information. That setting filters an underlying table to produce this view of data for the single, selected tenant.
