Hi there!

To reduce project dependency on 3rd party paid services the StackStorm TSC has decided to move the Q/A from this forum to Github Discussions. This will make user experience better integrated with the native Github flow, as well as the questions closer to the community where they can provide answers.

How to put variable in JSON body of core.http?

This workflow works:
version: 1.0

[555, 191]

action: core.http
url: <% st2kv(‘system.t20-url’) %>/equipment/actions/<% ctx(‘action’) %>
body: “{“id”:“60ac004413e4a00082c96bbd”}”
method: POST
Content-Type: application/json


  • equipmentId
  • action

But I do not want to hard code the id in the body, I want to use the ctx(“equipmentId”) variable. How can I use that variable, but still send the body as JSON? It seems like http.core requires the body to be a string.

Here is what I have tried:
“{“id”:<% ctx(“equipmentId”) %>}”
<% ‘{“id”:"’ ctx(“equipmentId”) ‘"}"’ %>
‘{“id:”’<% ctx(“equipmentId”)%>’"}’

They all fail with some parsing error.

I figured it out:

body: <% concat(’{“id”:"’, ctx(“equipmentId”), ‘"}’) %>
