Parsing HTTP Response Body

How do you parse the response body from an HTTP POST to extract a string from json?

 

I send a HTTP POST to an api from Random.ORG to generate a random string.  

 

I get the response successfully.  This is the response body:

 

 

{ 
"jsonrpc":"2.0",
"result":{
"random":{
"data":[
"48588608"
],
"completionTime":"2016-12-16 03:28:36Z"
},
"bitsUsed":27,
"bitsLeft":249460,
"requestsLeft":980,
"advisoryDelay":230
},
"id":32400
}

 

I want to extract the value 48588608 from result/random/data.

 

I am using Mcrosoft Flow and want to use this string in the next step of the Flow, to send in an email, for example.

 

Any guidance?

Hi @Kemedia,

 

I am not very familar with HTTP functions, have you tried the Compose in Microsoft Flow? What is the output result of the HTTP post body?

Maybe the following article would be helpful:
