Send and receiving json using MQTT in ignition

Hi all,
I want to publish and subscribe to a json payload using MQTT without it being changed to tags. Can this be achieved in ignition?

why would you not want to use the tags for this?

we just need to add the data coming in to the DB

You can facilitate publishing of arbitrary data to a user-specified topic via the Cirrus Link Python Scripting functions. I don’t think there is a way to perform subscriptions to standard topics outside of configuring an MQTT Engine Custom Namespace.
