    Description

      Currently, the Thread Context Map looks like this in JSONLayout:

      Current
       "Properties":[
            {
              "name":"UserName",
              "value":"admin"
            },
            {
              "name":"OrgName",
              "value":"test"
            } 
          ] 
      

      This does not properly make use of the JSON data format. Since the Thread Context Map is a map, it should be represented as a JSON object. And why not name it "mdc" rather than the quite vauge "Properties"?

      Suggested
        "mdc": {
          "UserName":"admin", 
          "OrgName":"test"
        }
