What is an Event?

For each Workflow, Temporal tracks two types of Events:

  1. Command Events.
  2. Everything else.
  • Command Events are events that correspond to Commands produced by the Workflow Worker.
  • All other events represent various external occurrences that the [Workflow] is expected to react to, such as an Activity completion, a timer firing, or a cancellation request.
  • All Events are recorded in the Event History. s
