Binding support

This component supports output binding with the following operations:

Query

In order to query InfluxDB, use a query operation along with a raw key in the call’s metadata, with the query as the value:

curl -X POST http://localhost:3500/v1.0/bindings/myInfluxBinding \
  -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
  -d "{
        \"metadata\": {
          \"raw\": "SELECT * FROM 'sith_lords'"
        },
        \"operation\": \"query\"
      }"
