Help with PARSE JSON fur dummy

Hello dear community,

 

I found on internet that I need to use a PARSE JSON step to transform the text taken from my Microsoft Form and have it simple text in the email that is sent afterwards.

 

The thing is... I have NO IDEA what I'm supposed to put in this step. I never heard of a JSON before so I don't know what it is and what I find on internet, I just don't understand. I'm not a programmer or anything close to that...

There are 2 different answers given in mu Forms for which I need the answers to be written in the email, so I guess I need 2 PARSE JSON steps.

And in CONTENT, I must put the Dynamic content that is the answer to the question I want.

 

But what in the world am I supposed to put in the SCHEMA field???

 

I don't even know what information is required to answer my question.

 

Please help me! I'm sure it pretty simple for a lot of people who could read this. I need your help!

 

Be safe.

Parse JSON helps you to parse a JSON string output into objects that you can use for the next actions... For example, Below I am calling Sharepoint REST API...

it generates JSON output. I am interested in reading one particular property so I use Parse JSON like below... Input is body from HTTP action.  First I gather, output from HTTP action which I use to Generate Schema by clicking below button.

Then when you can use each property from JSON as an object for next actions...
