I think I could do this in XML because you just take the root tag in the transfer I'm guessing - but I can't seem to do that when the response is .json. I was playing around using an XMLDatasource with the source property option of 'ResponseAsXML', but I was unsuccessful and am unsure if this will achieve what I want.
