    Hi again Teak,


    Its not a direct answer to the issue with the conditional goto TestStep (not sure how well they work with JSON), but since you are doing well with your Groovy, I thought I'd suggest a Groovy alternative that I personally find more flexible:


    import static com.jayway.jsonpath.JsonPath.parse
    def response = context.expand( '${REST Request#Response}' )
    def id = parse(response).read('$.id') id
    if (id!=null) testRunner.gotoStepByName("TestStepName")

    So, instead of teh Conditional Goto TestStep, if you instead create a Groovy TestStep after your Request TestStep, then the above code shows how you could:


    1) Get the response JSON from (in this case) a REST Request TestStep called REST Request.

    2) Parse the JSON response using JSONPath

    3) Test the value of id from the JSON document, and use the programatic equivalent of conditional goto.


    Hope this helps,
