com.jayway.jsonpath.PathNotFoundException: Array index [Ljava.lang.String;@4e711deb not found


I am new to SoapUI/Json/groovy script. I am trying to run a groovy script - shown below, but the system is showing error message as mentioned below:


Groovy script (pasting exactly from the script along with the line#):



  1. import static com.jayway.jsonpath.JsonPath.parse
  3. def navigatorModelResponse = context.expand('${getNavigatorModel#Response}')
  5. def propertiesStep = testRunner.testCase.getTestStepByName("");
  6. def timestampWidgetName = context.expand(propertiesStep.getPropertyValue("DefaultTimestampWidgetName"))
  8. def json = parse(navigatorModelResponse)
  9. def token ='$.constraintData[?(@.widgetLabel==' + timestampWidgetName + ')].token[0]')
  10. testRunner.testCase.setPropertyValue("serializedToken", token)


Error message:


"com.jayway.jsonpath.PathNotFoundException: Array index [Ljava.lang.String;@4e711deb not found in path error at line: 9"


I looked into line: 9 which is :

def token ='$.constraintData[?(@.widgetLabel==' + timestampWidgetName + ')].token[0]')

and try to analyze more and found that the response from 'getNavigatorModel#Response' (line#3), has '"constraintData": [],' but there is NO such element as 'token[0]'. Part of the response is shown below, which shows the 'constraintData[]' as blank:


"workspaces": [],
"toolbars": [{"actions": [ {
"handler": {"className": "com.kronos.wfc.handler"},
"id": "actionSignOut",
"label": "Sign Out"
"sessionModel": {
"signOffUrl": "/htmlnavigator/logoff",
"signOffSsoUrl": "/htmlnavigator/logoff",
"isSSOMode": false,
"isSSOTimeout": false,
"showSSOTimeoutWarning": false,
"navigatorSSOTimeOutURL": "/wfc/logonWithUID",
"navigatorSSOSignOffURL": "/wfc/htmlnavigator/logoff",
"hideSSOSignOut": false
"workspaceView": false,
"widgetView": false,
"navigatorView": false,
"delayLoadTime": 6000,
"containerMinWidth": 0,
"containerMinHeight": 0,
"constraintData": [],
"constraintRules": {
"constrained_links": [
"Leave Case",
"Attendance Editor",
"Schedule Editor"
"user_threshold": ["70"]


I am NOT sure, how resolve this issue. Any help is appreciated.

    No voice in JsonPath.
    Would it be possible to post full json along with what data needs to be extracted so that alternative can be possible.
