Replace one part in a request with the value from an variable

Hi,

 

Is there a way to replace the "XXXX" in the method below with the value of the variable replaceToken?

 

def replaceToken = "username"

parsedJson.secrets.XXXX.toString()

 

I.e., I would like to achieve following automatically 

parsedJson.secrets.username.toString()

 

Seems like an easy thing when working with strings but when I want to have it in a call then it always interprets the replaceToken as "replaceToken" and not "username"

    Have a look at http://blog.gtiwari333.com/2012/08/groovy-grails-dynamic-method-n-variable.html

     

    You can call methods using variables and array elements.

     

    I've created a small Groovy script as a demo.  See below.

     

    def myObj = new MyClass();
    
    // Call in the usual way.
    log.info("Call in the usual way.");
    log.info(myObj.methodOne());
    log.info(myObj.methodTwo());
    log.info(myObj.methodThree());
    log.info("-------------------------------------------");
    
    // Call using a variable.
    log.info("Call using a variable");
    
    def methodToCall = "methodOne";
    log.info(myObj."$methodToCall"());
    
    methodToCall = "methodTwo";
    log.info(myObj."$methodToCall"());
    
    methodToCall = "methodThree";
    log.info(myObj."$methodToCall"());
    
    log.info("-------------------------------------------");
    
    log.info("Call with method name in an array");
    def myArray = ["methodOne", "methodTwo", "methodThree"];
    log.info(myObj.(myArray[0])());
    log.info(myObj.(myArray[1])());
    log.info(myObj.(myArray[2])());
    
    log.info("-------------------------------------------");
    
    class MyClass {
    
    	MyClass(){
    		// empty constructor
    	}
    
    	def methodOne(){
    		return "I am method one";
    	}
    
    	def methodTwo(){
    		return "I am method two";
    	}
    
    	def methodThree(){
    		return "I am method three";
    	}
    }

      Chris, 

      You are a true hero.. Thank you so much. It worked perfectly. Now I am able to read a .json file and set my project properties to the values from the secrets file. Without this I would have to declare every property manually which is not efficient at all. Great!!

       

      //get secret file for the active environment
      					secretsJsonFile = projectpath + "ReadyApi_Secrets\\secrets_" + activeEnv + ".json"		//get secrets file for the active environment
      					log.info("secretsJsonFile = " + secretsJsonFile)
      				
      					// Read jsonfile and return text content
      					def secretsFile = new File(secretsJsonFile);
      					def parsedJson = new JsonSlurper().parseText(secretsFile.text)
      					def oneItem, oneItemValue
      					
      					for(i = 0; i < numberOfProjectProperties; i++)
      					{
      						oneItem =  projectPropertiesList[i]	//get one item in the projectPropertiesList
      						oneItemValue = parsedJson.secrets."$oneItem".toString()	//get the value of the item from the secrets file
      						log.info("oneItem = " + oneItem)
      						log.info("oneItemValue = " + oneItemValue)
      
      						//set global property value with value from secrets file
      						testRunner.testCase.testSuite.project.setPropertyValue( projectPropertiesList[i], oneItemValue)
