    The tables in the Configuration properties topic describe the properties used to define the integration.

    2. Under the Action column for the plug-in, click Add Integration.
    3. On the Add Integration page enter values for the fields used to configure the integration and define communication.
    4. Click Save.

    1. From a value stream page, download the value stream map. The value stream map is a JSON file used to define integrations.
    2. Edit the JSON file to include the plug-in configuration properties.
    3. Save and upload the JSON file. This replaces the current JSON file with the new content.
    4. View the new integration on the Integrations page.
