Deserialize Json - always getting error when passing output variable of http request activity

Hi All,

Im very new to UIpath. I am facing an error while deserailizing the output from an api to read its values. It is a simple json message after login, from where i need to get the access token:
unexpected character encountered while parsing value

RemoteException wrapping Newtonsoft.Json.JsonReaderException: Unexpected character encountered while parsing value: <. Path ‘’, line 0, position 0.
at Newtonsoft.Json.JsonTextReader.ParseValue()
at Newtonsoft.Json.JsonTextReader.Read()

this is the error.

I put the message directly in the deserialize activity and it works! but when stored as variable in the http request output getting this error. Unable to proceed. Please help!!!

May we ask you to show us the settings from HTTP Request.

Especially on following setting we are interested:

Maybe the response is XML. Feel free to debug the bot, set some breakpoint after HTTP Request and inspect the result / response

Yes you are right. The accept format type is ANY. the response is xml. Thank you for pointing it out…!! I kept confusing it with another api response and kept using json.
