JSON Parse Error

I am experiencing a validation error on my JSON Parse step and I'm not sure where my error exists.

 

ValidationFailed. The schema validation failed.

 

Schema:

 

{
  "type": "object",
  "properties": {
    "data": {
      "type": "array",
      "items": {
        "type": "object",
        "properties": {
          "variant_id": {
            "type": "integer"
          },
          "location_id": {
            "type": "integer"
          },
          "reorder_point": {
            "type": "string"
          },
          "average_cost": {
            "type": "string"
          },
          "value_in_stock": {
            "type": "string"
          },
          "quantity_in_stock": {
            "type": "string"
          },
          "quantity_committed": {
            "type": "string"
          },
          "quantity_expected": {
            "type": "string"
          },
          "quantity_missing_or_excess": {
            "type": "string"
          }
        },
        "required": [
          "variant_id",
          "location_id",
          "reorder_point",
          "average_cost",
          "value_in_stock",
          "quantity_in_stock",

Hi @stinsora :

The key is that there may be records in your content where the value of the "average_cost" field is empty.

Please try this schema:

 

{
    "type": "object",
    "properties": {
        "data": {
            "type": "array",
            "items": {
                "type": "object",
                "properties": {
                    "variant_id": {
                        "type": "integer"
                    },
                    "location_id": {
                        "type": "integer"
                    },
                    "reorder_point": {
                        "type": "string"
                    },
                    "average_cost": {},
                    "value_in_stock": {
                        "type": "string"
                    },
                    "quantity_in_stock": {
                        "type": "string"
                    },
                    "quantity_committed": {
                        "type": "string"
                    },
                    "quantity_expected": {
                        "type": "string"
                    },
                    "quantity_missing_or_excess": {
                        "type": "string"
                    }
                },
                "required": [
                    "variant_id",
                    "location_id",
                    "reorder_point",
                    "average_cost",
                    "value_in_stock",
                    "quantity_in_stock",
                    "quantity_committed",
                    "quantity_expected",
                    "quantity_missing_or_excess"
                ]
            }
        }
    }
}
