JSON.stringify() or something similar in PowerApps to serialize objects as JSON strings

Does anyone know a way that does not involve string concatination of serializing complex objects as JSON strings?

 

That could be useful when we need to send a JSON object as a request body or if we need to pass it to an MS Flow.

 

In JavaScript we have nice JSON.stringify() method for that. It would be awesome if it was just available for us in PowerApps. Unless I'm missing something I don't see any replacement for such an important function.

Hi @DenisMolodtsov,

 

Do you want to serialize complex objects as JSON strings without involving string concatination?

 

Thanks for your feedback, if you want to serialize complex objects as JSON strings without involving string concatenation, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

I am wondering how come this was not included when other few JSON functions were added. Type conversions are basic.

I already voted!!

This is causing a great deal of pain for our company. I have a few MS Flows that automatically fill MS Word templates. The Flows take JSON and use the JSON fields to populate the MS Word templates.

 

Please add fucntions to send/convert a Collection/ Table as JSON.
