JSON Path is used to locate the data in JSON object. JSON Path is currently used in the following two functionalities of vREST:

  1. Variable Extractor tab
    In variable extractor tab of a test case, you need to specify the JSON path in "Path" column.
  2. JSON Body Assertions
    In Assertions tab, you need to specify JSON Path for JSON Body assertions in "Property" column.

Below are some examples on how to define the JSON Path.
