  • 1.  Trim white spaces in Split Variable Assertion

    Posted 10-16-2017 09:27 AM

    Hi guys I am working of API Gateway 9.1

    I have an Json Response, I am using Evaluate JSON assertion(prefix is jsonData) & getting multiple values. 

    Ex: ${jsonData.results} gives all values as a1, b2, c3


    Then I am using Split variable (ex: variable - split) to split using comma (,)

    It is spiting with the white-space after comma(,) In Audit logs I can see the spitted values with space after comma



    Then I am using Run Assertions for Each Item Assertion with HTTPS Route,${split} c3

    (There is space between / & c3)


    I get an error because the space in between the. How can i remove/trim the space?

    Hello siddharth-b ,

    You can use regex to trim the white spaces before use it, as shown below, leave "Replacement" empty.

    NOTE: it will trim the white spaces in the middle as well,

    if only trim beginning white space
    if only trim ending whitespace

    if you want both, use 2 regex.
