Use the Send shape to send a given message to a specified port. If you expect to receive an indirect response (not using a request-response port) to the message that you have sent, you will need to correlate the message with the currently running instance of the orchestration, so that the respondent can get the response to the correct instance. You can apply a following correlation set to the Send shape for a previously initialized correlation, or you can apply an initializing correlation set.
