I have tried to get specific value from json data but getting null or exception

The below is my json data

  "Name": "Kumar",
  "policyName": "Lic",
  "targetResource": "3Months",
  "attributes": {
    "MajorIssue": {
      "attributeId": 1,
      "attributeKey": "check",
      "attributeValue": "7776000000"
  "enabled": true

need to get this value from the above json data
"attributeValue": "7776000000"

What I have tried:

The below is my code that i have tried to fetch the specific value

dynamic Result = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject(jsonResultFromAPI);

foreach (var item in Result )

    retentionPeriod = item.attributes.attributeValue;//API Value;

Try this plz:
var innerObj = Result.GetType().GetProperty("attributes");
return innerObj.GetType().GetProperty("attributeValue").GetValue(innerObj).ToString();

I suggest to create models to present your JSON data:
public class MajorIssue
    public int attributeId { get; set; }
    public string attributeKey { get; set; }
    public string attributeValue { get; set; }

public class Attributes
    public MajorIssue MajorIssue { get; set; }

public class RootObject
    public string Name { get; set; }
    public string policyName { get; set; }
    public string targetResource { get; set; }
    public Attributes attributes { get; set; }
    public bool enabled { get; set; }

so you can deserialize objects easily:
dynamic Result = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<RootObject>(jsonResultFromAPI);

var value = Result.Attributes.MajorIssue.attributeValue;

Hi Majdi,

With out taking class can we get that specific value from API response which is in json format
Majdi Saibi 27-Apr-18 17:25pm    
Yes, you can. Without looping through the result object.

var value = Result.attributes.attributeValue;

I have a property in json with - symbol like "ren-es-value"
due to that i am not able to get value getting exception.
I have replace that value without - symbol.
Now it is working thankyou
