Sending NodeClickedOn data from a Netcool OMNIbus 8.1 Web GUI Event List using Netcool Impact

The Netcool/OMNIbus 8.1 Event Viewer and Event List widgets have the capability to send the event data from the event clicked on to another widget via wires. The default format of this data is a JSON message. For widgets that do not support JSON formatted data however, this is a problem, since the recipient widget will not know how to process the data payload. This companion supplement provides a worked example of how you can use Netcool/Impact to pre-format the JSON message into a format consumable by the target widget.
The target widget in the example given is a table and hence requires an array of name/value pairs. In the worked example, Impact receives the JSON string, parses through it, extracts the target data from the target fields, populates an array of "Impact Objects" and then passes it back to the table widget via an output parameter. The process outlined in this worked example could be applied to preformat event data for any type of widget.
