The In Memory state store component is useful for development purposes and works inside of a single machine boundary.
WarningThis component shouldn’t be used for production. It is developer only and will never be stable. If you come across a scenario and want to use it in production, you can submit an issue and discuss it with the community.
To setup in-memory state store, create a component of type
state.in-memory. See this guide on how to create and apply a state store configuration.
