Json Parse Schema

I am trying to parse data from my API into Flow, however i cannot figure out how to parse a list of objects. I want the end result be that for each item in the list, i can send an email about it.

 

Data given by API:

 

{
  "item1" : {
    "category" : "1",
    "name" : "my name",
    "data" : "my data"
  },
  "item2" : {
    "category" : "2",
    "name" : "my name",
    "data" : "my data"
  }.........
}

 

payload given by JSON parser:

 

{
  "type": "object",
  "properties": {
    "item1": {
      "type": "object",
      "properties": {
        "category": {
          "type": "string"
        },
        "name": {
          "type": "string"
        },
        "data": {
          "type": "string"
        }
      }
    },
    "item2": {
      "type": "object",
      "properties": {
        "category": {
          "type": "string"
        },
        "name": {
          "type": "string"
        },
        "data": {
          "type": "string"
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

how to i set the parser to understand there may be diffrent items in the list?

Hi @jhenry,

 

Take a look at the parse JSON Action:

Parse JSON messages

Then you should be able to manage the items returned by the Parse JSON Action.

Hi @jhenry

 

What you need to do after parse? i really recommend you to use the expression json() to parse your text in this case.

 

If you can explain a little more for us your case will be great.

 

Hope have helped,

hi @gamoraes,

 

For each Item (item1,item2,item3.....) i want to get its name and email it someone. I will use the json() to parse the body to json, but i still need to parse the data correctly since it is not a finite amount of information.
