Parsing an object within an object

Hello,

I’m using ruby and the switchvox gem to pull data from an Asterisk box.
I’m having a little trouble with the response I get back for the
switchvox.callQueues.getCurrentStatus method call. I’m trying to pull
the waiting_callers info from the response (seen below in the response
as an object in the response object). No problem pulling the other info.
The gem requests and returns a json response. I’m not having much luck
accessing/parsing it. Am I missing something obvious?

Thanks so much

cq = switchvox.request(“switchvox.callQueues.getCurrentStatus”,
{“account_id”: “1390”})
puts cq.inspect

This is parsed already. Why are you asking how to parse this?

Thanks so much

It’s a bit difficult to decipher. You could try to output it like this:

require ‘pp’
pp cq

Maybe that gives a clearer picture because it prints nested structures
better than #inspect.

Hi, it’s only partially parsed… There’s an object in the “parsed”
json that I can’t access.

@waiting_callers=#Object:0x00000002190a58

Ok, I got a response from the Vendor on the API. The object that I
couldn’t parse needed to be accessed as follows. The @waiting_callers
object is sometimes returned as an Array or Hashes, a Hash, or an empty
Object. That’s messed up, but anyway…

Thanks again for your response…

count = cq.waiting_callers.waiting_caller.length
