Not able to map a JSON response containing attribute-names that contain periods.


Hi all,

We're having difficulty mapping the JSON body of a REST response to page variables in our web application built in Visual Builder, as the names of the JSON attributes contain a period/dot.

We're calling the "Retrieve the Task Payload" REST endpoint of Process Cloud ( and got it to return the payload response in JSON instead of XML (default) by setting the 'Accept' request header to 'application/json'. The payload contains three business objects and their attributes, as these three business objects were added to the task's form in Process Cloud.

Howdy, Stranger!
