REST JSON Christmas Puzzle – Work around

Posted: January 4, 2016  |  Categories: BizTalk Uncategorized
Tags: JSON Pipeline

I created the following workaround  to my Christmas puzzle . I created a custom pipeline that includes the Json encoder and BRE pipeline framework pipeline components.


I created a business rule shown below to replace null,  with “ “, in the JSON message and ran this from the BRE pipeline component framework. This would not be good with large messages but I went with this because my JSON messages will be small.


Please let me know if you find a better work around.

  • The one issue with the above work around is that it adds a Byte Order Mark to the message. This is a problem with some systems.

    • To get around this issue we created a Custom Pipeline Component to remove the BOM.

  • Also the the Action should be as follows, otherwise if the last null is the last item it will not get replaced.
    Replace the string “: null in the message body with the string “: “”
