JavaScript Object Notation, or JSON, is human-readable text used when transmitting data objects consisting of attribute:value pairs between a server and a web application as an alternative to XML. JSON, while it is originally derived from JavaScript, is a language-independent data format. Code for parsing and generating JSON data is available in many programming languages.

        Dim seconditem = jsonResulttodict.Item("success")
        Dim thirditem = jsonResulttodict.Item("codes")

A 3rd party provider is sending json back to me in this format.


When I execute $json = json_decode($response,true); the last value is not being picked up. How do I read the false statement at the end?

I can get the value of key by using $key = $json->key; but found won't show it's value.
Python Gurus--

I am utilizing a 3rd-party API which returns the data I'm looking for in JSON--however, there is a u'foo' in front of everthing. Maybe a unicode thing?  I want to extract the elements to toss into a tabe that has the same element names.

I'm looking to consume an external Rest API Json data source into a SharePoint Online list column. I have the enterprise version with BCS.  Anyone had luck with this?
I am trying to do something similar to the app specs below.  I'm looking for a sample.  I thought I would use Core MVC,  Ajax and SQL server.  I'm looking for a sample that can show me each step.

It's pretty simple.
1. My app has a form with 4 fields. (Vin, Make, Model, Year)
2. I input Vin in field 1 (Vin)
3. I GET from a third party Rest API JSON by passing the Vin to a URI string. The string will pass Vin I input and an API key
4. The API returns (Make, Model, Year)
5. I want to fill the additional form fields with (Make, Model, Year)
6. Finally, I want to save all fields (Vin, Make, Model, Year), to my Database.

I have been searching for an example similar.  I did find the Weather app example, but it's not complete.  It's just part of it.
Weather example:
I have been asked to do some work developing a WebAPI in .Net using VS 2017 and I have been asked to use JSON Web Tokens (JWT).  I plan on staying with the uniform interface but testing the header which will contain a JWT.  I realise that this test needs to happen in line with any GET, POST, PUT, OR DELETE request but prior to it happening.  I am staying close to MVC style of the convention but I don't know how to capture and test the JWT and authorise it.  I do know how to encrypt/construct and decrypt a token.  What I am specifically ignorant is the capture in process and testing to accept or reject any request.

We have a JSON file that we are trying to read and put the Key and the values in a CSV file. We are getting an error as below. can someone please help?

Attached is the sample JSON file and the Python code we are using.

Our program accepts 2 arguments one is  input_file which is json and the other one is output_file which is csv. When we execute the code as below with both arguments the code is failing with the following error. We are using Python version 2.7.5

./ --input_file /home/dqadmin/json/work_items.json  --output_file /home/dqadmin/json/work_items.csv
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 66, in <module>
  File "./", line 54, in main
    value = item.get(key, '')

Thank you

I am trying to parse a JSON format data that is stored in oracle CLOB data column. There are multiple/nested objects in the JSON data so I need a query to automatically get all the object/parent name and the value related. Please see attached is the sample example of the JSON data  and the expected output.

I tried the below query but it only gives the value and not the object/Key name.

       JSON_TABLE(json_msg, '$."Additional Statement No".*'
         COLUMNS ( 
           "Attribute/Parent" varchar2(32000) PATH '$.parent()',

Hello - I am trying to figure out how to accomplish two items when working with HTML tables.

1). I want to have the results of the table limited based on user entry in a text box.

2) In addition...I want the results to be sorted based on the value of another field.

For example...for the data in the JSON file specified below...lets say the user has entered "Business Owner" into a text box on the website...I want the results to be limited to only that job...and I want the data sorted by the Roll field.

Where do I start in getting these items accomplished?

We had a migration on our sharepoint farm from SP2010 to SP2016 and several things in our custom list forms really appear off and was looking to see if someone else had experienced this and might have a solution for correction. We do have the opportunity to re-migrate so we can make changes on the SP2010 side to prepare for final migration which will happen at the end of next week.

Issue 1 any person or group field on our new or edit forms show up weird, the two icons for check names and browse people directors are now outlines in obnoxious blue lines

Issue 2 the check names function appears to work but the browse triggers an error to the screen JSON is unidentified and rather than getting the old pop-up window it builds an addition to the bottom of the screen for a people selection which is very ugly. And it does not appear that new addition to the bottom of the screen works it just spins.

Issue 3 One of our very standard forms shows up as completely unusable screen shot attached enter image description here

Issue 4 When we include a people or group field on a display form we get a weird icon in front of the actual value see attached enter image description here

Issue 5 We also get a lot of these very strange pics pop up wherever we try to put the textname of a user or group on a page see attached enter image description here

THese are all show stoppers for us to migrate so we are scrambling to try and find answers to fix on the receiving end or on the …

I have a custom list application which has a bunch of People/Group fields that worked great in SP2010 on the form the field space showed with two icons (lookup and check).

Code looks like this
<SharePoint:FormField runat="server" id="ff42{$Pos}" controlmode="Edit" fieldname="CSE" __designer:bind="{ddwrt:DataBind('u',concat('ff42',$Pos),'Value','ValueChanged','ID',ddwrt:EscapeDelims(string(@ID)),'@CSE')}" />

After converting to SP2016 the icons are outlined in blue amd when you click them you get a JSON error "JSON is Undefined.

I have set up a basic shopping cart which loops through the item id's in the cart and retrieves product details from the database from the id's. I am putting the data into an array and json encoding it. Their shopping cart contents are then displayed to them via jQuery.

I want to also show them the subtotal but I cannot put that into the loop. When putting it outside of the loop I don't know how to json encode it.

I tried this:

echo json_encode(array($cart_details, $response));

But even if that is correct, I don't know how to extract the arrays in jQuery.
