Webhook - Case Management connectors
createCommentJson

(Optional, string) A JSON payload sent to the create comment URL to create a case comment. You can use variables to add Kibana Cases data to the payload. The required variable is case.comment. For example:

{
  "body": {{{case.comment}}}
}

Due to Mustache template variables (the text enclosed in triple braces, for example, {{{case.title}}}), the JSON is not validated when you create the connector. The JSON is validated once the Mustache variables have been placed when the REST method runs. Manually ensure that the JSON is valid, disregarding the Mustache variables, so the later validation will pass.

createCommentMethod
(Optional, string) The REST API HTTP request method to create a case comment in the third-party system. Valid values are either patch, post, and put. The default value is put.
createCommentUrl

(Optional, string) The REST API URL to create a case comment by ID in the third-party system. You can use a variable to add the external system ID to the URL. If you are using the xpack.actions.allowedHosts setting, make sure the hostname is added to the allowed hosts. For example:

https://testing-jira.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/{{{external.system.id}}}/comment
createIncidentJson

(Required, string) A JSON payload sent to the create case URL to create a case. You can use variables to add case data to the payload. Required variables are case.title and case.description. For example:

{
	"fields": {
	  "summary": {{{case.title}}},
	  "description": {{{case.description}}},
	  "labels": {{{case.tags}}}
	}
}

Due to Mustache template variables (which is the text enclosed in triple braces, for example, {{{case.title}}}), the JSON is not validated when you create the connector. The JSON is validated after the Mustache variables have been placed when REST method runs. Manually ensure that the JSON is valid to avoid future validation errors; disregard Mustache variables during your review.

createIncidentMethod
(Optional, string) The REST API HTTP request method to create a case in the third-party system. Valid values are patch, post, and put. The default value is post.
createIncidentResponseKey
(Required, string) The JSON key in the create case response that contains the external case ID.
createIncidentUrl
(Required, string) The REST API URL to create a case in the third-party system. If you are using the xpack.actions.allowedHosts setting, make sure the hostname is added to the allowed hosts.
getIncidentResponseExternalTitleKey
(Required, string) The JSON key in get case response that contains the external case title.
getIncidentUrl

(Required, string) The REST API URL to get the case by ID from the third-party system. If you are using the xpack.actions.allowedHosts setting, make sure the hostname is added to the allowed hosts. You can use a variable to add the external system ID to the URL. For example:

https://testing-jira.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/{{{external.system.id}}}

Due to Mustache template variables (the text enclosed in triple braces, for example, {{{case.title}}}), the JSON is not validated when you create the connector. The JSON is validated after the Mustache variables have been placed when REST method runs. Manually ensure that the JSON is valid, disregarding the Mustache variables, so the later validation will pass.

hasAuth
(Optional, boolean) If true, a username and password for login type authentication must be provided. The default value is true.
headers
(Optional, string) A set of key-value pairs sent as headers with the request URLs for the create case, update case, get case, and create comment methods.
updateIncidentJson

(Required, string) The JSON payload sent to the update case URL to update the case. You can use variables to add Kibana Cases data to the payload. Required variables are case.title and case.description. For example:

{
	"fields": {
	  "summary": {{{case.title}}},
	  "description": {{{case.description}}},
	  "labels": {{{case.tags}}}
	}
}

Due to Mustache template variables (which is the text enclosed in triple braces, for example, {{{case.title}}}), the JSON is not validated when you create the connector. The JSON is validated after the Mustache variables have been placed when REST method runs. Manually ensure that the JSON is valid to avoid future validation errors; disregard Mustache variables during your review.
