Parsing Response with missing identifier

I use postman for running REST api’s over JD Edwards E1 and have coded a number of test scripts to format the Json responses into easy to read tables for our support staff.

To do this I usually code the response values as {{response.identifier1.identifier2}} and everything comes out fine.

However, one particular api gives a response like:

[ { identifier: “value” } ]

No matter how I code it, I can’t get a value out. I have tried:


But nothing seems to work. Is there something I’m missing?

Thank’s in advance

Hi @astradyneuk

[ ] are an array so try referencing the index.


Thank you for the suggestion, I tried and got a parse error:

Parse error on line 24:
...>            {{response[0].jobname}

Just tried changing it to


and it worked. Thank you so much for your help.
