    I was trying to retrieve a data from the json response by passing the jsonpath through assertion. Below is the json response,

    "messageHeader": {
    "acknowledgement": "All",
    "messageType": "D",
    "credentials": {"alias": "TEST"},
    "sourceSystem": "test",
    "expiryTime": "2020-02-05T11:04:00.000+0000",
    "messageID": "1001.1",
    "correlationID": "AAO",
    "reply": {
    "reply.data": "\n\t\t FINAL \n\t",
    "reply.status": "failed"
    },
    "userId": "balurk",
    "trackingID": "DDD"
    }

     

    In this json, i'm trying to retrieve the text from "reply.data". I used the json path : $.messageHeader.reply.[reply.data]

    This jsonpath works fine when i use it in some jsonpath online sites. But the same is not working from Devtest run time and is throwing "The specified JSON path is invalid. JSON path = '$.messageHeader.reply.[reply.data]'". 

    Can someone please suggest some solutions?

    Hi balu,

     

    Please use  json path as : $.messageHeader.reply.['reply.data']. The single quotes are missing in your json path. Please note that I have  tested it in 10.2
