JSON Data Point Format - Solved.

  • Hi,
    just in case anyone intested - the json value pointer' field should be '/observations/data/0/apparent_t

    I am trying to setup a JSON retriever data source from a weather service and its JSON file path is below:
    As a test, I want to retrieve the value of 'apparent_t' as pointed out in below partial json file and screenshot:

    below is my data source setting, since i am not sure about the setpoint part, I have used the same url
    0_1569158845698_Screen Shot 2019-09-22 at 11.26.04 pm.png

    Now comes to the data point part, I tried in the 'json value pointer' field with '/observations/data/apparent_t/0' (i tried a few other path as well but no luck)
    but it gave out an error shown below:
    0_1569159176158_Screen Shot 2019-09-22 at 11.32.46 pm.png

    Can I have some direction as what I have done wrong here?


  • Hi cwangv,

    It sounds like you figured it out based on the bolded comment at the top? Maybe a second post would have been more straightforward, but thanks for sharing that it was resolved / the resolution you found.
