How to retrieve info from integrations POST?

Hi. I'm attempting to create an integration to keep track of certain dev environments for users in a room. Currently I've gotten as far as setting up a Node server and returning a string in response to a slash command.

However, in the "example webhook data", none of the JSON seems to be defined as listed:


I tried to log the item but it only comes back as "Undefined". 


Logging the req itself shows a massive JSON object, but scrolling through it doesn't reveal anything that looks related to the "example webhook data".

Essentially I would like to have users be able to type a slash command and then an argument or series of arguments, and return data based on that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
