Convert JSON Object to Array

Hi everyone,

 

I have a custom connector that grabs the exchange rate for a bunch of currencies and returns them in a JSON object. I'm trying to work with the values in an array so I can loop them in an Apply to Each action later.

 

End Goal

I have a SharePoint list that contains about 30 symbols and I want to update the associated rate.

My plan is to add each symbol that I need in an array and then use the filter array function to compare what I have in SharePoint and what is coming from my custom connector.

The only thing stopping me is that I can't use any array function because the body of my custom connector is considered an object.

 

This is the body I get from my custom connector:

Hi @sam_sonepar 

I've done a test on my side as the following:

split.png

 

1) Initialize an array variable called Currencies.

 

2) Get the "conversion_rates" element : variables('customConnectorResult')?['conversion_rates']

3) Split the conversion rates elements by ",".: split(string(outputs('compose')),',')

4) For each element.

  4.1.) Get the currency and its value (have to remove some special characters):

Currency: replace(replace(replace(split(item(),':')[0],'"',''),'{',''),'}','')

Value: split(item(),':')[1]

  4.2) Append this element to the currencies array

5) Filter the array by the wanted currency (EUR in the example)

@equals(item()?['currency'], 'EUR')

 

Hope it helps!
