After deserialize Json from orchestrator string, can not retrieve specific content from a particular ref

Hello everyone.

Using “Http Orchestrator Request activity”, I get the items filtered as I need, then deserialized them, and I get the info I want.

But I want to call an specific content using the reference number, I can get the info using the index, but I couldn’t find the way to use the reference number after some trys and documentation, screenshot attached with the info I retrieved and the whole info using the select token “value”:


What I am trying to do is instead using the index, call directly the entry with an specific reference number

Thank you for your time!

If we got your request right, you are looking for the endProcessing Value of a particular QueueItem by using the Reference, right?

give a try on

SelectToken("$.value[?(@.Reference == ‘YourReference’)].EndProcessing")

otherwise we can also use LINQ

Thank you, but it doesnt work.

My url for the get, filtered by status, and dates: urlorchestrator+QueueItems?%24filter=Status%20eq%20’Successful’%20and%20StartProcessing%20ge%202021-08-25%20and%20EndProcessing%20le%202021-09-03&%24select=Reference%2C%20StartProcessing%2C%20EndProcessing"

Here is the full object in string format:

“”@odata.context"": ““urlfromorchestrator/$metadata#QueueItems(Reference,StartProcessing,EndProcessing)””,
“”@odata.count"": 7,
““value””: [
““Reference””: "“49477"”,
““StartProcessing””: ““2021-08-26T11:51:56.517Z””,
““EndProcessing””: ““2021-08-26T11:51:56.89Z””
““Reference””: "“50069"”,
““StartProcessing””: ““2021-08-26T11:53:21.33Z””,

““EndProcessing””: ““2021-08-26T11:53:22.9Z””
““Reference””: "“50084"”,

““Reference””: "“50212"”,
““StartProcessing””: ““2021-08-26T11:53:25Z””,
““EndProcessing””: ““2021-08-26T11:53:25.263Z””
““Reference””: "“50236"”,
““StartProcessing””: ““2021-08-26T11:53:25.687Z””,
““EndProcessing””: ““2021-08-26T11:53:26.077Z””

Hi @Alberto_Palma ,

You can also use it as shown below


Instead of putting in dictionary you can store values in string or dt as per your requirement.

One thing that you can try

arrMatches | JObject() = YourOBJ_Result(“value”).Values(Of JObject).Where(Function (x) x(“Reference”).Value(of String).Equals(YourRefID)).toArray

depending of it was found (arrMatches.Count = 1) we can grab the value by
arrMatches (0)(“EndProcessing”)…

Thank you, making a dictionary is the best solution.

Besides I’d play with the query to get ordered by reference

Thank you for your time.
