Example requestsedit

Creates a ServiceNow connector:

POST api/action
{
  "actionTypeId": ".servicenow",
  "config": {
    "casesConfiguration": {
      "mapping": [
        {
          "source": "title", 
          "target": "short_description",
          "actionType": "overwrite"
        },
        {
          "source": "description", 
          "target": "description",
          "actionType": "overwrite"
        },
        {
          "source": "comments", 
          "target": "comments",
          "actionType": "append"
        }
      ]

  },
  "secrets": {
    "username": "admin",

SIEM case title fields are mapped to ServiceNow short_description fields. When a SIEM title field is updated and sent to ServiceNow, the ServiceNow short_description field is overwritten.

SIEM case description fields are mapped to ServiceNow description fields. When a SIEM description field is updated and sent to ServiceNow, the ServiceNow description field is overwritten.

SIEM case comments fields are mapped to ServiceNow comments fields. When a SIEM comments field is updated and sent to ServiceNow, the updated text is appended to the ServiceNow comments field.
