JSON Viewer

JSON Viewer

The JSON Viewer component allows you to display the results returned by a function.

Ways to use a JSON viewer

Display embedded JSON fields within a particular table

If you have a table where one of the fields is embedded JSON fields (nested data), you can bind that column to a JSON component, which will unroll that data for easy readability.

Example:
You have a Listings and Reviews table where the Address field contains nested JSON data, with more details. You can add a JSON viewer, selecting this table and the Address column to display. Then, clicking on any table row will display the Address data in the JSON viewer component.

Display the most recent result returned by a custom HTTP function

Any functions bound to components in this space will also be available to bind to. For custom HTTP functions, the JSON viewer will display any results returned by that function.

Example:
You have a Ping User custom HTTP function. The API returns some information about the user, as well as whether or not the ping succeeded. You have this custom function bound to a form component in your space. You can drop in a JSON viewer that will display the results of the Ping User function - whenever someone uses the form to ping a user, the JSON viewer will display the results.

Configuring your JSON viewer

Name your viewer component and then select an available action from the dropdown.

Tip: What is shown in the dropdown is dependent on the existing components and functions already in the Space. For this reason, we recommend adding the JSON viewer after you have added and configured your other components.
