How to use Appium to send/recieve json with custom Framework from CI?

We are attempting to Automate our Unity app from TeamCity/Jenkins to a remote machine with mobile devices attached.

We are using the AltUnityTester framework to automate our Unity app.

Our CI has a tunnel to the machine with Appium server running with connected mobile devices.

How do we use Appium to accept a json blob from the CI tunnel, pass it to our Unity app, get a return json message from the app to Appium, then push that json back to the framework.

Our framework and app already work when the device is directly connected to the same machine. It almost sounds like I’d like to use Appium as a json repeater since our CI can’t talk directly to the mobile device.

Thanks for the suggestions
