How to convert webresponse to text

I am using Automation for Jira to request information using a web request. It returns a JSON that is in fact not really useful:

{latest=2022-05-03T15:16:30+00:00, employees={598={id=598, action=Inserted, lastChanged=2022-05-02T18:19:51+00:00}, 602={id=602, action=Inserted, lastChanged=2022-05-02T18:19:51+00:00}, 603={id=603, action=Inserted, lastChanged=2022-05-03T15:16:30+00:00}}}

In fact I need 3 ids from this JSON. But objects in employees are not a part of array, it is a hash map. When I use webresponse.body.employees I have no idea how to extract ids.

A good solution would be to convert employees to string, use split function and convert it to array. E.g.


however this does not work and returns empty text.

Are there any ideas?

This works


It returns 

{id=603, action=Inserted, lastChanged=2022-05-03T15:16:30+00:00}

However I do not know "603" for every response, today it is 603, tomorrow it will be 620. 

It would be nice to have something like a list of keys of a json object


that I can iterate through.
