Require condition to check depending upon the Json Node response

Hi, 

 

Depending upon the json node, for a json node if the key exists and value exists  i have to set property in custom properties and if the key value doesnt exist then i have to set the property with null value.

 

My Same response with the Key value exists in response for a Json node.

 

{
"maxResults" : 50,
"startAt" : 0,
"isLast" : false,
"values" : [
{
"id" : 221,
"startDate" : "2018-06-26T20:00:16.850Z",
"endDate" : "2018-07-09T21:00:00.000Z",
}

]
}

 

in Above json response, if the id exists and the value for the id i must set to a custom property

 

Sample response for which for json node values. id doesent exists, in this scenario i have to set custom property as null

 

{
"maxResults" : 50,
"startAt" : 0,
"isLast" : true,
"values" : [ ]
}

 

i tried below script, but its not working as expected.

 

def response_id = context.expand( '${CurrentSprint#Response#$[\'values\'][0][\'id\']}' )


if (response_id !=null)
{
testRunner.testCase.testSuite.testCases["Test"].setPropertyValue("Active", "$response_id")
}
else
{
testRunner.testCase.testSuite.testCases["TEST"].setPropertyValue("Active","null")
}

Re: Require condition to check depending upon the Json Node response

Hi,

 

Firstly, have you tried logging the response to see what you have?

 

 

def response_id = context.expand( '${CurrentSprint#Response#$[\'values\'][0][\'id\']}' )
log.info(response_id);
if (response_id !=null)

 

 

XPath is more for XML response and not JSON.  If you want to use XPath, then maybe pull the response as XML.  E.g.

 

def response_id = context.expand( '${TestStepName#ResponseAsXml#$[\'values\'][0][\'id\']}' )

 

I haven't tested this by the way, but that should convert the response to XML so you can traverse with XPath.

 

Instead, you could convert the response to JSON using JSON Slurper and interrogate as a JSON Object....

 

import groovy.json.JsonSlurper;

def slurper = new groovy.json.JsonSlurper();

// Obviously, you would need to pull the string from the response first.
def result = slurper.parseText('{"maxResults" : 50,"startAt" : 0,"isLast" : false,"values" : [{"id" : 221,"startDate" : "2018-06-26T20:00:16.850Z","endDate" : "2018-07-09T21:00:00.000Z"}]}');

// Can we get ID?
log.info(result.values.id);

return result.values.id;

 

 

Re setting property value, I'd imagine that .testCases["Test"] is different from .testCases["TEST"].  Is your test case called 'Test' or 'TEST'.

 

Here's an example based on the JSON in your question on how to check and set Property Value if the id is there or not.

 

import groovy.json.JsonSlurper;

def slurper = new groovy.json.JsonSlurper();

def result = slurper.parseText('{"maxResults" : 50,"startAt" : 0,"isLast" : false,"values" : [{"id":221, "startDate" : "2018-06-26T20:00:16.850Z","endDate" : "2018-07-09T21:00:00.000Z"}]}');

// Can we get ID?
log.info(result.values[0].id);

// Check for Id....
if (result.values[0].id){
	def id = Integer.toString(result.values[0].id);
	testRunner.testCase.testSuite.testCases["Grab JSON - TestCase"].setPropertyValue("Active", "$id");
} else {
	testRunner.testCase.testSuite.testCases["Grab JSON - TestCase"].setPropertyValue("Active", "Not Found");	
}

return result;

@ChrisA

Its a cracking response....explains each point (e.g.trying to use xpath in json, etc.) and lays it all out very nicely.

if this helped answer the post, could you please mark it as 'solved'? Also if you consider whether the title of your post is relevant? Perhaps if the post is solved, it might make sense to update the Subject header field of the post to something more descriptive? This will help people when searching for problems. Ta

Re: Require condition to check depending upon the Json Node response

hi @ChrisA 

 

Thanks for the detailed reply. I have written the code like this.

 

def response = context.expand( '${CurrentSprint#Response#$[\'values\'][0][\'id\']}' )
log.info response

if (response != null)
{
testRunner.testCase.testSuite.testCases["Jira Executions"].setPropertyValue("Active1", "$response")
}

else
{
testRunner.testCase.testSuite.testCases["Jira Executions"].setPropertyValue("Active", Empty)
}

 

Where as def response = context.expand( '${CurrentSprint#Response#$[\'values\'][0][\'id\']}' ) the id will be coming blank some times in the groovy response, So i wrote if loop, to save the value in custom properties, where as when the response is null or not null its checking only condition.

Attached is the groovy response.. 

 

So if the response is null i have to Set custom propery as string empty, other wise what ever the value is coming in the response that value i have to store in the custom properties

Awesome job, Community!

 

@doubtsreadyapi could you let us know if some more help is required here from the community members or if the code you came up with works for your case? Thank you.
