  • eventRecord > fieldsMap - event fields and data are key - value pairs in the map format {"key1":"value1", "key2:"value2"}
  • eventRecord > flatFields - shows the event field and data as an array of name - value tuples {"name1":"value1", "name2:"value2"}

The fieldsMap fields shows the fields and values for the event as key value pairs object.
