Hi everyone,

I'm working on setting up a webhook alert to create tickets on our customer service portal. When a device encounters a problem, it will send a webhook to Jira, which will then automatically generate a ticket. I can define some information in the webhook payload template (in JSON format), and I would like to incorporate a function that selects the alerting device from a custom field.

Since I have an object schema with assets, I've configured a custom field for it. Initially, I attempted to include the serial number of the alerting device like this:

"customfield_XXXXX": [ { "name": "{{deviceSerial}}" } ]

However, Jira ignored this field, leaving the custom field empty. On the other hand, when I used:

"customfield_XXXXX": [ { "objectId": "XXX" } ]

 successfully created a ticket with the alerting device selected in the custom field, as I directly specified the asset ID.

I'm looking for guidance on how to adjust the code so that I can update the custom field with the serial number or device name. Since we won't know in advance which device will trigger the alert, I can't simply use a fixed objectId. While I understand that automation is a great option, I would prefer to stick with API calls.

Thanks in advance!
