Thanks for your revert ,but as my input body takes as whole string with backward slashes (" ") as shown in below request body so how can i pass name as variable in request body .
{“parameterData”: “{“action”: “Insert”,“name”: “Lauren”}”}

if i will try passing variable as name in below request body then i am getting error in response : (

{“parameterData”: “{“action”: “Insert”,{{name}}”}

Please advise any way to pass this variable as input body request body is defined as whole string rather than plain vanilla json body :frowning:

Looks like you’re missing some quotes and a closing bracket…

Try;

{"parameterData": "{\"action\": \"Insert\",\"{{name}}\"}"}

same error :frowning:

Thanks James ,you are really helpful so far .i am still not able to post this request body successfully with “name” as variable .please assist me

I made a mistake when comparing to your original question, I missed a property.

Try;

{"parameterData": "{\"action\": \"Insert\",\"name\": \"{{name}}\"}"}

Are there any docs you are working from? 1
