How to merge 2 json objects?

Hello, I have an existing json object and I'd like to merge another json object into it. I don't want to combine them into an array. I'd like them merged. Any ideas how I'd do this?

 

 

| eval object1=json_object("somekey","value")

 

 

 

 

| eval object2=json_object("someOtherKey","value")

 

 

Combined Value:

 

 

{"somekey":"value","someOtherKey":"value"}
