Issues with Parse JSON function

Hi guys,

 

I am running into issues parsing the following JSON response with a dynamic array id, which in the below example is "697676":

 

{
"superAdjustments": {
"697676": [
{
"notes": null,
"amount": 405.46,
"contributionType": "Employer Contribution",
"id": 321838,
"externalId": null,
"locationId": "174855",
"locationName": "Mkt-023",
"employeeId": "697676",
"employeeName": "Christopher WOOD",
"employeeExternalId": "a3V28000000wnh2EAA"
}
]
},
"payRunId": 3346135
}
 
When I set the Parse JSON schema it hard codes the array id, how can this be set to dynamically update?
 
 
Below is the top of the JSON schema where the array is defined:

Below is an example of flow failing due to the response array id, not matching the static array value set within the schema:

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Hi @JesseW 

 

The issue you are seeing is because of the key mentioned in JSON payload and the variable you used in Apply to Each, has the same ID as your payload rather than having the output ID. This can be resolved if you pass correct ID in the Apply to Each input.
 
Please follow the below steps:
 
1) Initialize a variable to store the dynamic ID after the Parse JSON action. 
    Expression: 
split(string(body('Parse_JSON')?['superAdjustments']),'"')[1]
    This gets the dynamic ID.
 
2) Input for the Apply to Each Action with the below formula:
body('Parse_JSON')?['superAdjustments']?[variables('DynamicId')]MicrosoftTeams-image (101).png

Hope this helps!
