Load Data from REST with JSON payload

Hi everybody

I'm trying to get data from the Zabbix API into Splunk. For this I need to be able to send some parameters in JSON format to the API. For example:

{
    "jsonrpc": "2.0",
    "method": "host.get",
    "params": {
        "output": ["hostid"],
        "selectParentTemplates": [
            "templateid",
            "name"
        ],
        "hostids": "10084",
        "user":"username",
        "password":"password"
    },
    "id": 1,
    "auth": "asdf"
}

With the Add-On Builder I'm only able to add simple parameters but not JSON.
Is there any other possibility?

Thanks and kind regards,
Lukas

You write Python code to perform the API access and submit JSON or any other kind of data this way. You can find more details at https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/AddonBuilder/2.2.0/UserGuide/ConfigureDataCollectionAdvanced and https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/AddonBuilder/2.2.0/UserGuide/PythonHelperFunctions.
