parse_json(str, container)

Parses the json string str and places the resulting json object into container where container can be any valid rsyslog variable. Returns 0 on success and something otherwise if str does not contain valid json.


In the following example the json string is placed into the variable $!parsed. The output is placed in variable $.ret

set $.ret = parse_json("{ \"c1\":\"data\" }", "\$!parsed");
