It looks like the response body is an array that contains objects. You would need to reference which object you want to get the information from or it won’t know where to look. :slight_smile:

As the property you need is in the second object, you need to reference that by specifying the index location. It’s zero indexed so the second one would be [1].

From your example code, you could do this to get that value:
