Object Reference not set to an instance of an object - Assign Activity

Hi, trying to extract data from a json which is obtained from a HTTP Request from where the output is a String. The next step is a Deserialize JSON activity where the input is the string variable and the output is a JObject. The final step is an Assign activity where I call the JObject, input the name of the node I want and assign it to a variable.


The instruction inside the Assign activity is the following: vReportJObject(“Employee_ID”).ToString

Thanks! Any help is appreciated

@Daniela_Valdez_Luis Check the StatusCode of HTTP Request if its returning 200 or not,
if it’s returning 200 than deserialize it and print it to console and check “Employee_ID” key exists or not.

Check in debug mode If your are getting the correct response

Thanks for the response! Its empty, should it be 200?

Just did it, its not writing anything as an output

Ok, not I got an output but I get the same error. Any further tips you might have for me?


Please log the JSON variable in the output panel to check whether it has an “Employee_ID” value in it. If you can share the JSON response in a text file or XAML file. We can look into it. Thanks.

can your share your workflow please?

Hi, I’m sorry
I can’t it has company information
Appreciate the help

can you please output in write line or message box your json before the assing activity?

Note that the key (“Employee_ID”) is case sensitive.
And best debug approach will be placing WriteLine (vReportJson) before the assign activity.
