Opsgenie's out of the box integration with ServiceNow currently populates the short description, description, and assignment group of an Opsgenie-created, ServiceNow incident. A lot of folks ask how to customize the web service script to populate additional fields in the ServiceNow incident, so I thought I'd write it up and share it with you all on the community.

Line 3 grabs the actual alert payload from the “alert” variable
Line 4 grabs the value of the entity field from the payload, and assigns to a variable named “opsgenieEntity”
