Setting URL Parameters for External Website JSON input

I hate to ask this question -- I feel like it should be glaringly obvious -- but hours of searching have netted no results.

 

I have an external website that sends me JSON information.  The url looks like:

http://servername/jsonQuery/GetInfo/DTM=YYYYMMDDHHMMSS/Time=XX

 

I'm wanting to create an input using the "Poll an External Website for JSON" connector that grabs data every 30 seconds, but inputs the current date/time in the DTM= section. 

 

http://servername/jsonQuery/GetInfo/DTM=20160518145204/Time=30

 

However, I can't figure out how.  It looks like there is a Parameters field in the Advanced section of the configuration that would enable this, but I can find no examples and no documentation as to how this is used. 

 

Any guidance is greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
