Create your own integration (CYOI)

A custom integration is a user-defined endpoint that ingests JSON objects and converts them to Moogsoft events or metrics. Custom integrations enable you to ingest data from third-party systems with different schemas. When you set up a custom integration, you specify how to map the third-party data to Moogsoft-compatible event or event objects.

Custom integrations have the following features:

  • A UI that guides you through the process of creating a custom endpoint and mapping third-party data fields to Moogsoft fields.

    For events, you can also map third-party severities to Moogsoft severities.

  • Support for basic and bearer token authentication using API keys.

  • No limit on the number of unique API endpoints you can create per workspace.

  • Support for testing and validating the mapping.

    You must validate an integration before you enable it. To be considered valid, an API must include mappings for all required event or metric fields. If the incoming payload does not include the data for a required field, you can specify a plain-text placeholder such as "unknown" instead.

  • If your third-party schema does not include a field that corresponds directly to a Moogsoft field, you can create event workflows to enrich and process your data after ingestion. The Example scenario for CYOI and the A workflow configuration example together illustrate a simple end-to-end workflow.
