Set JSON

This step action replace the entire found part of a JSON value with a new JSON value. The new value must be a valid JSON value, e.g. an object { "answer" : 42 } or a quoted string "Life, the Universe and Everything".

The step action only works on JSON variables.

The new JSON value.

The value can be specified in several ways using an extended version of the Value Selector. This value selector contains the usual 4 ways to specify the value and an extra very useful selector: Generate From Variable. This selector automatically generates JSON from a variable of complex type. E.g. if you have a variable with a type that has two attributes: name and age and the values of these are "Joe" and 23 then the generated JSON could look like: { "name" : "Joe", "age" : 23 }.
