An activity to parse JSON text to a dictionary.

This activity converts a string of JSON text into a dictionary representation of the JSON object. This allows a workflow author to extract values from within the JSON.

In a Workflow:

This activity is often useful following a DownloadString or WebRequest activity that has obtained JSON textual content from a request. To access values contained within the JSON text you first need to parse the text to a dictionary using this activity. The dictionary provides a structured object that you can then use to access values.

The input text must be valid JSON.
