Hello Community - We run into an issue with storing the JSON inside a string property. Basically we have a property with the type String, in that property we are having a paragraph and hyperlinks in it. As part of the hyperlink, we need to store some JSON string. We tried using escape characters for JSON key and value but it is not saving in JCR. Could someone let me know the way to handle this use case. As we don't want to create a separate String / String [] property for storing the JSON.

 

String:

Test String <a data-test-attr="{\"Test\":\"Data\"}" href="https://www.google.com" >Test Page</a>

Did you try with encoding

 

<a data-test-attr="{%22Test%22:%22Data%22}" href="https://www.google.com" >Test Page</a>AEM-String-URL.png

Hi @v1101 

Try to add data attribute value within single quote as mentioned below, then it will save value as expected.

 

Test String <a data-test-attr='{"Test":"Data"}' href="https://www.google.com" >Test Page</a>

Access same data attribute values in front end:

json1.PNG

 

Hope this helps!

Hi @v1101 

Replace all double quotes with single quotes.

<a data-test-attr='{"Test":"Data"}' href='https://www.google.com'>Test Page</a>
