Parsing JSONs from String

Some connectors and databases return JSON data in an escaped string that you can not use right away. Here an example:

	"timestamp": 1657722582,
	"information" : "{\"id\":\"0001\",\"type\":\"donut\",\"name\":\"Cake\",\"ppu\":0.55,\"active\":false}"

If you receive JSON data as a string that you like to convert into a JSON, you can use our dictionary helper.

If we assume that the data is stored in get_data the following code example will help you to parse the data in a way that it can be read as a JSON:

{{ get_data.information | replace('null', 'None') | replace('true', 'True') | replace('false', 'False') | replace('\\/', '/') }}

The result will be:

    "id": "0001",
    "type": "donut",
    "name": "Cake",
    "ppu": 0.55,
    "active": false
