Integration response mapping configuration:

Response mapping configuration is mainly based on the response payload that is received in third party payload;

below are a few examples for response mapping configuration -

  1. sample response payload to mapping the id in response mapping:
    external ticket id = $id  
    We need to append **$** to the value

    2. sample response payload to mapping the id in response mapping:

external ticket id = $

    3. Sample response payload to mapping the id in response mapping:

                    "display_value":"testing description",
external ticket id = $result[0]

    4. sample response payload to mapping the Incident Number in response mapping:

              "result": {
              "Incident Number": "INC0001",
              "type": "Incident"
external ticket id = $result[‘Incident Number’]

  1. Verify Integration: Enter sample values to validate if the integration is successful.
    • Select an event from the drop-down, enter the XML payload, and click Verify. A 200-OK success response is generated if the integration is successful.
