function process() {
  const body = ric.webhook?.request?.body ??? {};
  const lat = +(body.lat || 0);
  const lon = +(body.lon || 0);
  return { lat, lon }
  1. Create a webhook for the handler.
  2. Add the handler to the object.
  3. Perform a mapping between the output parameters of the handler and the arguments in the model of the object.
