Is it possible to forward data to third-party systems in other formats than syslog and raw?

Is it possible to forward cooked parsed data (containing all fields) in json format to some external TCP end-point (using Heavy Forwarder)?
I found that it is possible to send cooked data, but I couldn't find specs for this format, is it possible to use this kind of data in external TCP end-points or it is Splunk internal format, which shouldn't be used outside of Splunk? According to docs in case of Heavy Forwarder these cooked data should be parsed. I am wondering what rules are used in process of parsing events by Heavy Forwarder? How does it know what fields should it look for in raw data?

you can send raw logs using outputs.conf "sendCookedData"

outputs.conf
sendCookedData=false

I assume you mean I cannot achieve what I want. I'd like to setup forwarder to send messages containing all fields (like they were indexed). I thought maybe it is possible as forwarder has an option indexAndForward.

@tulinski Did you ever find a way to send splunk cooked data to third-party systems?

Hi. Did you find a solution to get indexed data out of splunk to a third party system?
