Hi every one i have a json response like below i need only “display_name” how can i get that i tried using select token but it was not working can any one help me how to do that using regex or in any other way

“transform_map”: “CAP Interaction WS”,
“table”: “interaction”,

“record_link”: “”,
“status”: “inserted”,
“sys_id”: “d40dc6f01b92e854868dddb6bb4bcb9b”

Hi @bpt.teja1996

Try to deserialize the json string and get the display name value directly by dictionary format

Or try using regex pattern too

check as below

Happy Automation


as it is a json you can use deserialize JSON (Array) Activity (reference UiPath.WebAPI.Activities within the dependency manager)

After parsing it into a JObject acces a property by: YourJSONObjectVar(“PropertyName”) e.g. YourJSONObjectVar(“display_value”)

@NIVED_NAMBIAR can we show me how to use regex in UIpath I have that entire string in variable number how to apply regex to that now

Hi @bpt.teja1996
You can try this way

Lets say u store the entire string in number variable

Then use assign activity as below

display_name=System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(number, “(?<=“display_name”:).*”).Value
