Dynamic Channels for Json response

Afternoon all,

I have something I have been struggling with. I am monitoring a device using the https advanced (beta) sensor. I get a json response formatted like so:

[
    {
        "name": "name 1 ",
        "healthStatus": 1,
        "id": "dffe3364-3eea-4646-bfb3-e49c027d651e"
    },
    {
        "name": "name 2",
        "healthStatus": 1,
        "id": "f3cdfds1-43f7-471a-82bf-c85dc1bfdbbc"
    }
]

I am trying to have the sensor create channels that will have the name listed under name:, and the status will be returned by "healthStatus". I am failing miserably! Can anyone help me?

Hi,

Could you please let me know if this is the correct sensor type which you try to use?

Yes, that is the sensor I am currently using. I am not able to get the template correct to add each of the items added as a channel with the name under the "name:" tag and the status defined by the "healthStatus" tag. I would like these to be created dynamically. I have multiple endpoints that use this format and the results have different amounts and different names that respond with this same format.

Yes, I am using the http advanced sensor as described in that link. I am attempting to get the template set so that I can create channels with the name that is described in the "name:" field with the results showing the information held in "healthStatus:". I have multiple endpoints that use this api and they all return either a different number of results in this pattern, or different "names:" I need these to be created dynamically when I create the sensor. I understand they will not be added dynamically if the results change after the sensor is created, but that is ok.

Hi,

I would ask you to send us screenshots of the affected sensor to [email protected] and use the following number for the subject PAE2010383. This email will open up a new ticket where I can analyze the issue further.

Thank you in advance.
