HELP: Nested JSON Nightmare!

"Calling all cars!" Help! Days in, sooooo close. Need your eyes!

Schema in Collection: Works just fine.

{
    "LEVEL1": [
        {
            "LEVEL2": {
                "dontWorry": "aboutMe"
            },
            "LEVEL2": {
                "dontWorry": "aboutMe"
            },
            "LEVEL2": [
                {
                    "LEVEL3": [
                        {
                            "LEVEL4": "thing",
                            "LEVEL4_A": {
                                "ID": "1234",
                            },
                            "LEVEL4_B": {
                                "thingToPatch1": "Y",
"thingToPatch2": "X"
} } ] } ] } ] }

PROBLEM

  • I need to look at LEVEL4_A ID and Patch LEVEL4_B thingToPatch.
  • I cannot for the life of me figure out what to put in the { } !

SOOO CLOSE WITH THIS:

Patch(
    First(
        First(
            colCollection.LEVEL2
        ).LEVEL2.LEVEL3
    ).LEVEL3.LEVEL4_A,

LookUp(
        First(
            First(
                colCollection.LEVEL2
            ).LEVEL2.LEVEL3
        ).LEVEL4_A.ID,
    LEVEL4_A.ID = ThisItem.LEVEL4_A.ID
),

    {
        WHAT ON EARTH GOES HERE?
    }

)

I cannot find a value that works for the Patch({update}). 
Has anyone faced this before? I'm a few days in now and wondering if I hit a limit in PowerApps.
(Definitely hit a limit in my understanding). Any ideas #PowerHomies?

Come for the difficult data situations and great solutions, stay for the data-related humor!

 

 

LOL! Reminds me of this xkcd cartoon...
