I've been trying to find resources the instruction object is handled (e.g. what affect does 'Order' have? which is run first and what happens with multiple options) and a good document showing all of the options in JSON format, but haven't had any luck. Does anyone have any resources?

This wiki page is a good starting point. Even though it is XML, should be easy enough to determine JSON version of the same.

This page should give you information on all options but it doesn't work properly anymore. Use the URLs on this reference page along with information in this on how to access the same in your setup.

For a general understanding of Instructions and order to be used in case of multiple options, I'd recommend reading the OpenFlow 1.3 spec [Section 5.9 onwards]

I had used that wiki already and hoped there were more JSON docs than are there; the main difference is in the headers for each field can't be copied from the XML. That page is mostly deprecated AD-SAL, and the API explorer doesn't give all the needed info on options. Thank you for the spec docs
