You can use this integration to:

• Define mapping between an alert or Situation and the keys in a JSON payload.

• Use with Workflow Engine actions. For example, to create a payload that can send alert or Situation data to an external system.

The payload map configuration follows a similar pattern to LAM mapping. A configuration consists of name:rule pairs. The rule is macro enabled to allow conversion or modification of the alert or Situation values.

A payload map can also contain multiple rules. The resulting JSON payload consists of key:value pairs based on these rules.

## Before You Begin

• A Map Name for your payload map. For example, "My REST Mapping".

• The keys for your resulting payload. Use these as the rule name.

• The values for your resulting payload. These serve as rules and allow you to use a predefined set of macros.

• Any default value, if any, you want for a key.

You can configure multiple payload maps from the Payloads integration. To configure the integration:

1. Navigate to the Integrations tab.

2. Click Payloads in the Reporting and Dashboards section.

3. Provide a unique integration name. You can use the default name or customize the name according to your needs.

4. Enter the details for each payload map you want to configure.
