I am connecting the the JSON with JSON connector but getting the error Key should not be null or empty!. I have attached the error picture as well as file that is causing the problem. It would be quite helpful if you can help.

Thank you

Hi @Junaid11 ,


As far as I am concerned,property has to be defined as nillable in the schema or else it will throw an exception.

If it is an array, it must be an array of strings, where each string is the name of one of the basic types, and each element is unique. In this case, the JSON snippet is valid if it matches any of the given types. 

Please check the [] and null property in your json file. 

Best Regards,
