You can construct the IoT data to send to the device by mapping the attributes from the trigger application. Also, you can use Excel-style functions to transform the data.
You have to select one value from the dropdown which shows all the IoT devices configured in your Azure IoT account.
IoT data is the data you wish to send on the above mentioned IoT device as an event. You can map this data from your trigger application. You can also use Excel-style functions to transform data before sending to you IoT device.
