Defining the initial state

To define the initial state, assign the desired properties to the initialState object.

JSON only

You may use any JavaScript data type and value that is supported by JSON. This especially means that you are not allowed to use constructor functions here. Rely on object and array literals instead.

E.g., if you want to add a field of type string named recipient, you will end up with the following initial state:

const initialState = {
  recipient: '',
  isAuthorized: {
    commands: {},
    events: {}

Required property

Do not remove the isAuthorized property, since this is a reserved name.

For more details on the isAuthorized property, see configuring authorization.
