    Why set this to "failed" rather than null?
    The risk of "failed" is that it will trigger subsequent enrichers to try to do something with this value (e.g. if someone wrote an SshCommandSensor to get part of the url, then we might subsequently use "failed" in that url - the downstream enricher can't tell the difference between this being a valid value and being the value on failed.
    If feels like the default of null is better.
    Longer term, we could make this configurable so that the default value on failed can be explicitly set.
