Check if a given key exists in a JSON REST API payload

About this blueprint

API Inputs

Its common to receive a payload from a REST API and check if a given key exists in a JSON payload. This flow demonstrates multiple ways of accomplishing that — a JQuery filter, a contains operator, and an is not null operator.

Check the Expressions documentation for more examples.
