    How to use deluge

    A webhook can be created using the global function of DELUGE. Using Deluge scripting, you can build custom functions that can manipulate data within ServiceDesk Plus MSP and other external applications.
    If the end user wants to change the payload/params they can receive the data as an input parameter of global function and return the same. The modified object values set in the metadata is used by dollar variable to replace the payload/params.
    First, create a global function with parameter name "metadata" and type as "Map". In this metadata,
    1. Pre function will get input of source object (SDP MSP request, diffJson)
2. Post function will get input of source object (SDP MSP request, diffJson) and response of third-party application.
    Note: Pre function is used to alter the source object (if needed) before calling the third-party application. Even without the pre function, the existing source object can be passed to replace the payload/params.
