Your DS does not match the document. Here's a version that works.

dcl-s json varchar(1000)
inz('{"path": "/test/34234234.pdf", "timeout": 0, "parms": null}');

dcl-ds pathDS qualified;
path varchar(200);
timeout int(10);
parms varchar(100);

Given that you show parms as a DS (and going on the ds name) I'm thinking it should be perhaps an array rather than a DS? How about showing us an example of the json that includes all values?

Also I don't know where you got "size" from - it doesn't exist in the json. Avoid using allowmissing if possible. If size is indeed missing from the doc then use countprefix as per previous examples here.

I have the following JSON example that is causing some issues with the DATA-INTO feature.

dcl-s json varchar(1000) inz('{"path": "/test/34234234.pdf", "timeout": 0, "parms": null}');

dcl-ds pathDS qualified;
path varchar(200);
timeout int(10);
dcl-ds parms;
type varchar(100);
size int(10);

data-into pathDS %data(json:'case=any allowmissing=yes') %parser('YAJLINTO');

Does anyone have any advice on how to get this to work properly?
