Not sure what exactly you want to get.
Within the JSON data I've neither seen PartNumber, nor AvailableQuantity,
nor Price, nor Message1, nor Message2
You want to get something that is not available, so what do you expect to
get returned?

If you want to decompose the JSON data, you can do it as follows:
select *
from JSON_TABLE('{ "CustomerAccountNumber": 1000171,
"AuthKey": "fjdsklfjdkslfdj",
"Parts": ["924-125"] }',
Columns("CustomerAccountNumber" Integer,
"AuthKey" VarChar(20),
"Parts" VarChar(20) Path

It seems to me you want to get the Array Element Data only.
If so you get them as follows:
select *
from JSON_TABLE('{ "CustomerAccountNumber": 1000171,
"AuthKey": "fjdsklfjdkslfdj",
"Parts": ["924-125"] }',
Columns("Parts" VarChar(20) Path '$.Parts[*]'));

Here is also a link to the JSON Documentation/Examples on Db2 for i:

Subject: Help with JSON_TABLE

First time trying to do this and I have not found a good guide to explain
how this works.

I am trying to get this working. I am running it in ACS's SQL. It runs and
produces a blank screen. I do not see any errors in the joblog.

select q.*

--into :result

from JSON_TABLE('{ "CustomerAccountNumber": 1000171,

"AuthKey": "fjdsklfjdkslfdj",

"Parts": ["924-125"] }',

'lax $.Parts[*]'


"PartNumber" char(20),

"AvailableQuantity" char(20),

"Price" char(20),

"Message1" varchar(1000),

"Message2" varchar(1000)

)) as Q



How does it know what website to contact?

Is it writing to a file or returning a string?

If we request multiple parts, can I do a select into an array?

TIA, Darryl FReinkel.
