In nanoflow/microflow, how to parse JSON string into an object?
In my project, I need to scan a QR code with a mobile phone. The string that QR code encoded is an JSON string. So after the QR code is scanned, I need to transform the JSON string into an object. I have created the Domain Model, JSON structure, import mapping. But in the nanoflow, how to parse the JSON string into an object? The Mendix Studio Pro version is 10.0.0
You could approach this two ways
Call a microflow from the nanoflow and pass the JSON as parameter. Do your mapping to a non-persistent object and return the object. (the user needs to be online for this approach to work)
Use the nanoflow rest client to handle the mapping. The mapping works a little different than the import mapping in a microflow, but you won’t have to call the server with this approach.
