Execute Service
This action executes a ThingWorx service, and then returns the results of that service.
Services are functions that a Thing can perform. Each Thing can have one or more services. You can define services at the ThingShape, ThingTemplate, or Thing level.
A simple example of a service is a query written for a database Thing.
