When receiving data from a web server in the JSON format, the data is always a string (text). In order to be able to access the information inside this string, you must “parse” the JSON string so that it gets converted into a computer readable native JavaScript Object.

The parsed JSON object can then be used as input for the Access JSON, Convert JSON and Construct JSON components, depending on your needs.

In order to be able to change the JSON string via our platform or the API, you can give use the data coming from a Direct Text Input or an Import Text component as input to the Parse JSON component.
