Each component will check whether the input pack contains the expected data via checking the meta-data, and throws a :class:`~forte.common.exception.EntryNotFoundError` if the check fails. When this function is called with enforce is ``True``, all the pipeline components would check if the input datapack record matches with the expected types and attributes if function ``expected_types_and_attributes`` is implemented for the processor. For example, processor A requires entry type of ``ft.onto.base_ontology.Sentence``, and processor B would produce this type in the output datapack, so ``record`` function of processor B writes the record of this type in the datapack and processor A implements ``expected_types_and_attributes`` to add this type.
