[SOLVED] Using JSON in rules

Hello Everyone -

Hoping someone can help me. I’m trying to transform json, however the transform function is merely returning the entire json string, not the value.

I’ve run the input thru various json parsers/validators to ensure the inputs are correct and they all return the correct value. But for whatever reason, my rule isn’t executing correctly.

I’m hoping an extra set of eyeballs will help - here’s the simple example:

rule "Notify on Log Change"
    Item OmnilinkController_LastLogMessage received update
    val String tempUser = transform("JSONPATH", "$.parameter2", OmnilinkController_LastLogMessage.state.toString)
    logInfo("Log", "tempUser After Transformation: " + tempUser)

Here’s the input json:

Here’s what gets logged:
2018-12-28 19:18:15.318 [INFO ] [g.eclipse.smarthome.model.script.Log] - tempUser After Transformation: {"eventNumber":20409,"timeDataValid":true,"month":12,"day":28,"hour":19,"minute":6,"eventType":48,"parameter1":2,"parameter2":1}

For the life of me, I can’t see why it’s not returning an error and/or returning the proper value.

Finally, I should note system details:
OpenHab 2.4
latest apt-get upgrade (updated system yesterday).

Thanks for your help!

Is the JSONPATH transformation installed in the PaperUI?

I … am… so… embarassed. :stuck_out_tongue:

Neither my JS or JSONPATH transformations were working. Add-ons --> Transformations. Ugh, now I know why!

Thanks for the help! I’m going to go hang my head in shame now… :blush:
