Hey @sadiyadiya02.sd

Welcome to the community! :star:

You could loop through the response and check the id type like this:

pm.test("Check id is an number", () => {
    _.each(pm.response.json(), (arrItem) => {
        console.log(arrItem.id)
        pm.expect(arrItem.id).to.be.a('number')
    })
})

I’ve using the lodash .each() function to loop over the response data and then checking that the id is a number. There’s a console.log() statement there so you can see the values.

You mentioned id but as there are 2 in that object, which is the one you wanted to do the check against?

This looks horrible but it would work if you wanted to check the id inside the cam_reports array:

pm.test("Check id is an number", () => {
    _.each(pm.response.json(), (arrItem) => {
        _.each(arrItem.cam_reports, (report) => {
            console.log(report.id)
            pm.expect(report.id).to.be.a('number')
        })
    })
})

I’m not sure I know what that means - Can you provide an example please.

What have you tried and what isn’t currently working for you?

I don’t really understand what you mean.

You’re using a schema validation test in a for loop?
