The JSONPath Existence Match assertion uses a JSONPath expression to select content from the target property and check whether it exists.
The JSONPath expression in this assertion returns a Boolean value. To compare a value with the specific content, use the JSONPath Match assertion.
This assertion applies only to requests and responses, bodies of which contain JSON data.
To learn more about the JSONPath syntax, see JSONPath Reference.
This assertion is available in multiple ReadyAPI applications. Depending on the application, it validates the following data:
|In...||Checks...||To learn more...|
|SoapUI functional tests||The request or response body.||See Working With Assertions in SoapUI.|
|SoapUI security tests||The response body.||See Security Assertions.|
|ServiceV||The request body.||See Assertions in ServiceV.|
In the JSONPath Expression edit box, specify the JSONPath expression to point at the element you want to check for existence, or use the toolbar controls to create the expression automatically.
|To use the toolbar controls, run the request you want to validate at least once.|
Click to call the Select JSON dialog. Use it to select a node from the last request or response and create a JSON path expression for this node.
In the Expected Result edit box, specify the value you are expecting to get.
Use these commands to visually select the value from the existing request or response:
|Select Content||Add a property expansion in the result.|
|Select from Current||Get a value from the last response you have received (or the last request the ServiceV virtual service has received).|
To command the assertion to use an asterisk wildcard (
*) for varying parts of the value, select Allow Wildcards.
|Note:||If you do not select this option, the assertion will fail on dynamic values.|
To test your assertion on the last response you have received (or the last request the ServiceV virtual service has received), click Test.
To avoid typing the desired JSONPath expression manually, click and select the desired JSON element or attribute in the subsequent dialog.
ReadyAPI will form the JSONPath expression that refers the selected item, and will set the result from the last request or response as the expected result.
