    Please keep your test steps structure like below.










    and when you select "data source loop" select options like below,














    and please keep below code in groovy script step (Data validation in above image)


    //import library to parse JSON
    import groovy.json.JsonSlurper

    //get the JSON response from the test step that makes the call to some test step to get a JSON response
    def response = testRunner.testCase.getTestStepByName("GetEmployees").getPropertyValue("Response")

    def responseJSON = new JsonSlurper().parseText(response)

    //verify the slurper isn't empty

    def attrName = context.expand( '${DataSource#attribute_name}' )

    assert(responseJSON.toString().contains(attrName)): "attrName $attrName doesn't exists in response"


    Note: if your response have multiple arrays, and objects. and the assertion attribute coming in particular array/object please navigate to that and do assertion so it will reduce time complexity.

    Ex: assert(responseJSON[i].employees[j].accounts.toString().contains(attrName)): "attrName $attrName doesn't exists in response"
