I'm following this blog post to create a SharePoint group then assign permissions and users.
My flow fails at step 5 - Parse JSON.
Error message is: Unable to process template language expressions in action 'Parse_JSON_-_Owners' inputs at line '1' and column '16532': 'Required property 'content' expects a value but got null. Path ''.'. Any idea where I could be going wrong with it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
@calvares when you use sample json which does not handle null value.
Please go through this post
Please 'Thumbs Up' the posts that helped you and 'Mark as Solution' if my post answered your question.
Double check that your HTTP request is actually returning data and not a null array. This error complaining about a null Path usually means there is no data in the Body you are trying to parse.
Thanks @Hardesh15 - that's helpful. I might try option 1 as I don't need to generate dynamic content value.
Could you tell me where I would need to add the null value to this part of the code?:
Still no luck @Hardesh15 . I identified a property that was coming up as null and tried option 1 and 3 from the post but get the same error.
Thanks for the suggestion @Hardesh15 but this didn't work on my flow, nor did any other attempts at getting rid of that null value.
I do wonder if the issue is with the body of the HTTP request as @Pstork1 suggested, since that is what the error message suggests too. But I can't see how it could be turning up null.
Check the response status code from the HTTP Post. You might be getting 202. The request has been accepted for processing, but the processing has not been completed.
I was having the exact same error mentioned here, although I was trying to parse the HTTP action output, error says that it is getting null for the content in Parse JSON action, since I found that I am getting the value in my http action then why it is null in parse json action.
The thing I tried is, I inserted body as expression in content field of parse action instead of inserting it as dynamic content and it is working now.
Please post this as a new question rather than a response to an already solved post. You'll get more responses that way.
