A context is a stateful object that can be used for enrichment in pipelines. You can manage a context instance with the context operator and use it with the enrich operator in one or more other pipelines.

Each context has a specific type that needs to be specified upon construction. Each context type defines how it processes updates and how it enriches. For example, the lookup table context extends events by performing a key-based lookup in a hash table.

The list below shows all available context types. For a more in-depth introduction into the contextualization framework, please refer to our blog post Contextualization Made Simple.
