Integer from JSON not recognized as Number type

I am reading a pretty simple piece of JSON from a REST call response using ClearCollect.

The relevant piece of JSON looks like this 

 

 "timeSpent": "6m",
 "timeSpentSeconds": 360,
 "id": "19458",
 "issueId": "116051"

When I try to use the value I get Invalid argument type: Expecting one of the following: Number, Text, Boolean

How is this possible when I am just reading a simple integer value from the JSON ?

Ok, just figured it out myself. This works!

 

Last(JIRACloud.GetWorklogForIssueID(ThisRecord.key).worklogs).timeSpentSeconds

If it's in quotes, it looks like it's coming over as text originally. 

Try wrapping it in a Value function.

Did you run the code through Parse JSON?  Or are you just trying to read it direct?  If you run the response through Parse JSON you can specify the schema for that field.

 

Also, I assume there is more to the response than that since what you've posted isn't a JSON record.  It just JSON formatting.

I'm parsing it into a Collection using ClearCollect. Is there another way of parsing as you suggest ?

That makes sense.  As a collection its treated as a JSON array and you were trying to access it as a JSON record.  Last() or First() will isolate the first or last record in the collection.
