parsing generic key value pairs

I have  some data pushed to Flow as an HTTP request received in the format below:

I've tried various json parse, compose, select and conditional workflow options.

However I can't find an efficient way to get each subitems keys and values into a variable structure so that I can send this to a stored procedure. This is just multiple fields for one record update. Can anyone help? 

 

{
"$content-type": "application/x-www-form-urlencoded",
"$content": "sdsdfsdfsdfsdf",
"$formdata": [
{
"key": "type",
"value": "update"
},
{
"key": "date_time",
"value": "2018-12-03T15:00:47-06:00"
},
{
"key": "initiated_from",
"value": "admin"
},
{
"key": "initiated_by",
"value": "admin"
},
{
"key": "list",
"value": "0"
},
{
"key": "contact[id]",
"value": "3870"
},
{
"key": "contact[email]",
"value": "x@x.com"
},
{
"key": "contact[first_name]",
"value": "xxx"
},
{
"key": "contact[last_name]",
"value": "xxx"
},
{
"key": "contact[phone]",
"value": ""
},
{
"key": "contact[ip]",
"value": "127.0.0.1"
},
{
"key": "contact[tags]",
"value": "test1,test2,test3"
},
{
"key": "contact[fields][14]",
"value": "2018-11-30"
},
{
"key": "contact[fields][17]",
"value": "85"
},
{
"key": "contact[fields][18]",
"value": "1481526"
},
{
"key": "contact[fields][7]",
"value": "sdfaswasf"
},
{
"key": "contact[orgname]",
"value": "asdgawfa"
},
{
"key": "orgname",
"value": "asfasdf"
}
]
}

Hi @phil4mat,

 

I have tried a lot on my side, it seems that "$content-type": "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" affects the entire process.
Without this, it is easy to get the value you want by traversing.
