BUG? JSONPath Existence Match cannot use condition

This was discovered when I chatted about a different issue in the forum. I am posting it here so the problem is more clear and hope to get some attention. Let's say I have a response like below

 

{"errors": [{
   "code": "100",
   "message": "Message for 100",
  },

  {
   "code": "200",
   "message": "Message for 200",
  }

]}

 

I created "JSONPath Existence Match" asserts as below

 

  Expression: $..errors[?(@.code == 100)]

  Expected result: true

 

  Expression: $..errors[?(@.code == 800)]

  Expected result: false

 

I would think both VALID, i.e. the actaul result of the second expression would be false. However, the actual result was true. The second assertion failed with the error:

 

  -> Comparision failed for path [$..errors[?(@.code == 800)]], expecting [false], and actual was [true]

 

However, if I create "JSONPath Count" asserts instead as shown below:

 

  Expression: $..errors[?(@.code == 100)]

  Expected result: 1

 

  Expression: $..errors[?(@.code == 800)]

  Expected result: 0

 

Both assertion will be VALID, i.e. the actual result of the second expression will be 0 (which is the expected value).

 

This is not consistent! Should this be a BUG?

 

I tried this on both SoapUI OpenSource 5.2.1 and the SoapUI NG Pro 1.5.0 (ReadyAPI 1.5.0). They all behave the same.

Re: BUG? JSONPath Existence Match cannot use condition

Hi Tanya,

 

Thanks for getting back to me.

 

This is really good news! Unfortunately, I cannot test it on Ready API since my trial license is expired and I am still waiting for the approval of the real license. I tried to install the maintenance build and it still tells me the trail license is expired.

 

Do you know if the change went into SoapUI open software version? Is there a maintenance build for the open software version I can test this on?

 

Thanks.

Re: BUG? JSONPath Existence Match cannot use condition

Hi Andrew_net,

 

As far as I know, the changes were done only in Ready! API. Have you already contacted anyone from SmartBear to prolong your trial period? I think they will provide you with a new license key.

Hi Tanya,

 

My license request finally went through and I verified that the maintainence build did resolve the problem.

 

Thanks a lot.
