Get/modify nested JSON list value

L4 Transporter

Hello,

There's a list in json format named "domainUrlStatus":

 

{"domain1.com":               {

                               "url1.com": {

                                               "status": "up",

                                               "date": "date"

                                               },

                               "url2.com": {

                                               "status": "down",

                                               "date": "date"

                                               }

                                               }

"domain2.com":               {

                               "url3.com": {

                                               "status": "up",

                                               "date": "date"

                                               },

                               "url4.com": {

                                               "status": "down",

                                               "date": "date"

                                               }

                                               }

                               }

 

How can the values be reached(think about the "." in the urls)?

How can I add a new value like "url5.com" inside "domain1.com"?

How to modify one of the last values? (like status)

How to check if a domain exists in all the json?

Trying to avoid using own automations, only using tasks

Hi @Josep,

 

You'll need to escape the dot. Example below.

${domain\.com.url1\.com.status}

 

Let me know if this works for you.

 Thanks for the reply,

so I should create a task that adds an "\" before the dot for each variable.

Hi @Josep.,

 

Sorry I don't see any way to make changes to the keys. You might need to try different escape sequences, but I was unable to find one. Also, passing the "\" to the deleteContext automation seems to break it and creates a context context entry. 

 

You could try passing the entire object into a python automation, but Python's JSON library might throw a schema error. Could you let me know which automation or integration is creating this context entry?

Yes, I'd many problems. First calling directly a variable of the list(json), like "${list}.${domain\.com.url1\.com.status}", this does not work. I need to put the Json inside the context

Second, what you said, I couldnt make changes to the keys, it was a mess, I had to convert them and then put them inside, not possible. 

So finally, I made it work just doing an automation in python from zero.

 

Load json:

allJSON = demisto.executeCommand("getList", {"listName":"domainUrlStatus"})
data = json.loads(allJSON[0]['Contents'])

 

Obtain the status given a domain and an url:

status = data[domain][url]["status"]

 

Change the status:

data[domain][url]["status"] = newStatus

 

Save the change on the JSON:

demisto.executeCommand("setList",{"listName":"domainUrlStatus""listData":data})

 

 

It's a pity that something so simple can't be done with simple tasks.
