Accessing values in json object

Hello, 

 

Could anyone tell/teach me how to access the 'values' section(s) of the below JSON using Microsoft Flow?

 

I want to parse the values of "name" and "id" (e.g. 'London' and 'LON' and 'Hamlets' and 'HAM') to variables so I can use them in another part of the flow. 

 

I've highlighted the specific parts in red. 

 

Thank you 🙂

Re: Accessing values in json object

To do this you will use a Parse Json action in the Flow.  Follow these steps.

  1. Add a Parse Json action to the Flow.  Create the Schema by inputting your sample schema into the action using the Use sample payload to generate schema link. Then add the JSON into the Content field.
  2. To get at your values you'll need to go through several layers since the records are nested
    1. Add an Apply to Each loop and load resolutionsPerAuthority from dynamic content
    2. Add an Apply to Each loop inside that loop and load values
  3. You should now have access to name and id as strings inside that nested loop.

Re: Accessing values in json object

Its because the JSON has nested records in it.  There is also a way to use index values to get at individual items, but I figured you wanted all of them.
