Nested json schema output issue

Hi Community users,

 

I am creating a Flow which gets triggered with a HTTP response.

The payload I receive has nested objects. (Payload sample attached at bottom)

In flow I am only able to get the data of payload elements which are not nested.

Plus, when I put the data element in the content field of a new parse Json action, it throws an error "Unable to process template language expressions in action 'DataBody' inputs at line '0' and column '0': 'Required property 'content' expects a value but got null. Path ''.'."


Somehow the elements which are nested are not getting fetched in the schema.
