Open Integration Manager - Advanced Configuration

The Open Integration Manager enables you to create custom inbound alert integrations through an intuitive UI.

The Open Integration Manager enables you to create custom inbound alert integrations through the configuration of a generic inbound integration rather than creating custom code. The integration manager sets parsing rules for incoming payloads, pre-processing the content to match incoming data requirements before it reaches the BigPanda enrichment engine.

Read more about key features and general configuration in the Open Integration Manager documentation.

Nested Objects

When using nested objects from a sample event, there are many different ways payload properties can be organized. Maintaining desired naming conventions requires careful configuration when multiple parent-objects may have the same child-object names.

The tag names and values sent to BigPanda will be determined based on the selections in the Source Tags, BigPanda Tag Name, and Ignore additional tags? fields.

Example Payload

The following payload will be interpreted into BigPanda properties depending on the Tag Mapping configuration:

{
  "metadata": {
    "entitytype": "value1",
    "entityname": "value2",
    "location": "value3"
  },
  "metadata2": {
    "entitytype": "value4",
    "entityname": "value5",
    "location": "value6"
  },
  "severity": "critical",
}

Caution with Arrays

If you send the same property name twice in a single event, BigPanda will only use the last value for that property name. We recommend avoiding this, if possible.
