JSONPATH - MULTIPLE RECORD SYNTAX IN GROOVYSCRIPT?

Hi,

 

I always struggle with JSONPATH relative to XPATH and this is another instance.

 

I have an assertion in my groovy script with the following syntax for a single record in the resultset - just to clarify - the total attribute within the data node has a value of 'Rich' (JSONPATH generated by readyAPI! would generate $[data][Name])

 

assert object.data.Name == 'Rich'

BUT - how do I represent multiplicity for multiple records in my resultset?

 

i.e. if I had 2 records in my result set - so there are 2 'Name' attributes in the data node - the JSONPATH to the individual Name attributes is as follows:

$['data'][0]['Name']
$['data'][1]['Name']

The JSONPATH notation in my groovy differs - does anyone know how to create a specific assertion on each of the above 'Name' attributes?

 

I tried 

assert object.data.0.Name == 'Rich'

and 

assert object.data.[0].Name == 'Rich'

 

As always?  I appreciate all/any guidance/help/education anyone's willing to impart! :)

 

Cheers,

 

richie

 

 

  • Are you expecting result is list of names?

    If so,

    assert object.data.Name == ['name1', 'name2'...]

    Does it help?

      aaah!

       

      So you're saying rather than have individual assertions that definitely describe their location in the response - just have one assertion with the expected results being an array of values?

       

      hahahaha! that'll do!

       

      Thanks man!

        Exactly. It is completely ok to have single assertion which can handle either simple or complex checks.
