Note: Schema is the only required option to create a connection string.

In the Schema tab, select the JSON schema file corresponding to your JSON data. The options available for specifying the JSON schema are:

Connection String

JSON connection string has two parts - jsondoc or jsondata and schemadoc or schemadata.

Note: If you are using an expression in the connection string, you should use single quotes (') instead of double quotes (") in jsondoc or jsondata and schemadoc or schemadata.

For example, the following connnection string is invalid:

="jsondata={  "Name": "Name"};schemadata={    "$schema": "",
    "definitions": {},    "id": "",
    "properties": {        "Name": {            "id": "/properties/Name",
            "type": "string"        }    },    "type": "object"}"

Use the following instead:

="jsondata={  'Name': 'Name'};schemadata={    '$schema': '',
    'definitions': {},    'id': '',
    'properties': {        'Name': {            'id': '/properties/Name',
            'type': 'string'        }    },    'type': 'object'}"
