Cannot set variable from Parsed JSON

I have a "When a HTTP request is received" trigger set up as the first step in my flow. I have a Parse JSON step that gets the body content of the received request. It parses it to a schema that I generated from a sample payload. I cannot seem to set/initialize a variable with any data from the parsed JSON. The variable that I am using is the customer first name. It shows up as blank or null even if there is data in the output section of Parse JSON. 

 

I am initializing the variable as a string and setting it to 

body('Parse_JSON')?['body']?['estimate']?['customer']?['first_name']

 

 

I have ran into a roadblock on this. Any help is appreciated!

 

Parse JSON Output:

Hi @william_nr3,

 

Can you try:

outputs('Parse_JSON')?['body']?['estimate']?['customer']?['first_name']

 

Or:

body('Parse_JSON')?['estimate']?['customer']?['first_name']

Double check your input and your schema.  I used the sample JSON you provided and it returns the first name using the JSON you supplied.  But my JSON schema looks a bit different from yours.

Hi @william_nr3,

 

Can you try:

outputs('Parse_JSON')?['body']?['estimate']?['customer']?['first_name']

 

Or:

body('Parse_JSON')?['estimate']?['customer']?['first_name']

Both work. Interesting- the extra body was thrown in there automatically when selecting dynamic content. Thanks a ton.
