Use REST api user query results in automation



when I validate user query in automation Send Web Request action, it returns correct payload with all data I need. But loging {{webhookResponse.body}} gives empty  line.

Do I use wrong variable to read response from GET method? How to access payload fields?

Thank you,

Hi @Vytautas St 

That is the correct smart value, and you may need to use dot notation to look for the specifics you need.

Have you checked the status to confirm the request succeeded?

Kind regards,

Thanks for hint, 

status 200, payload shows correct data when validating, but no logs when rule runs:

{{webhookResponse.body.accountId}} , {{webhookdata.accountid}},  {{webhookResponse.status}} are empty in log action audit.

It's user query, GET method.  Validation and rule test use the same issue key, actor permisions the same.

That is curious...Two other things to try:

In your rule, please try {{webhookResponses.last.body}} to see if that makes a difference when the response is a list; note the smart value is plural rather than singular.

And try running your request from a browser to examine the response with your parameters to see if it is structured as you expect.
