I run into an issue and would like to have it resolved.

Here is a raw data that I get:


{"01. Milestone":"01. START - Info Form Completed & Document Collection Started","02. Borrower Full Name":"Catch Hook","03. Borrower Email":"","04. Borrower Phone":"","05. Co-Borrower Full Name":"","06. Co-Borrower Email":"","07. Co-Borrower Phone":"","08. Loan Name":"Test",

How do I extract and steralize that?

Hello! Is there a reason you need to catch it as a RAW hook instead of catching a standard Webhook? (Just curious, on this one - If there’s a way to send the data parsed, instead of unparsed, you’ll save yourself this code step...) 

What you’ve sent, if we start to look into it, is part of a JSON payload and you can start to make more sense of it when you’ve formatted it like this:

"01. Milestone": "01. START - Info Form Completed & Document Collection Started",
"02. Borrower Full Name": "Catch Hook",
"03. Borrower Email": "",
"04. Borrower Phone": "",
"05. Co-Borrower Full Name": "",
"06. Co-Borrower Email": "",
"07. Co-Borrower Phone": "",
"08. Loan Name": "Test",

So we can start to see for instance that the Milestone is “01. Start….” 

We need to format this, though - So that Zapier can do something with this JSON...And the easiest way - I believe is to use JSON.parse in a code step...So, like this…




  1. is the variable name we give to our string
  2. is our string from the previous step (ie. the one you shared with us)
  3. is our code in a JavaScript step:
var output = JSON.parse(inputData.json)

output = [{output}];

Try this first...It may be what you need...And if it’s not, you probably want to just grab the first record in the array, and you can do this like so…

var output = JSON.parse(inputData.json)[0]

output = [{output}];
