Question from "A developer's guide to XSOAR 6.2" webinar: Does the Content Type of the list affect how it is read?

L4 Transporter

Does the Content Type of the list affect how it is read in by an automation or playbook, or is that only for editor syntax highlighting? Previously, would input json into a list, but since it is read in as text, we would have to handle the data with a text to json transformer. Does this still work the same?

It works the same. 

The content type of a List does not matter when it is pulled into a playbook task. You would need to use ParseJSON transformer to convert the string obtained from the list into a valid dictionary object.

Same with automation scripts. 

The webinar demos both these capabilities. Please feel free to check out the recording and revise.
