JSON Value Extractor

World's Simplest JSON Tool

Free online JSON value extractor. Just load your JSON object in the input field and the tool will automatically convert its values to a list. In the tool options, you can specify the nesting depth of objects that you want to extract values from. You can also customize the extracted value delimiter and optionally stringify values and wrap them in quotes for convenient further use. Created for developers by developers from team Browserling.

᠎᠎᠎          Tool Options

Value Extraction Depth

Depth of the objects that you
want to extract values from.
For example, "1", "1, 3", or "1-4".
Use "*" to extract all values from
all objects at all recursion levels.
The outer object has depth 1,
the object nested within it
is at level 2, and so on.

Value Output

Delimit extracted values with
this symbol (use \n for a
newline and \t for a tab).
Stringify extracted values
and enclose them in double
quotation marks (").

Complex Values

If the object's value is a nested
array or object, print "[array]" or
"{object}" as a value. Otherwise,
don't print it.

What Is a JSON Value Extractor?

This tool extracts object values from the given JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) objects. In the input of the tool, you must load a valid JSON object and the tool will recursively walk through it and print just the "value" parts of the "key-value" pairs it finds. You can also specify which values you want to get and customize their display. In the tool options, you can set the nesting depth (recursion level) of the objects to look for values in. For example, setting this option to "1" will extract values from the first level of nesting (root object). Similarly, setting it to "2" will recurse into all second-level objects and will look for values there. You can also specify several depth levels at once. For example, "1, 3" will extract values from the first and third levels. Additionally, you can specify a range of levels. For example, "1-4" will extract values from all objects starting from the root object and going four levels deep. To quickly extract all values from all nested objects, enter a wildcard star "*". Values that can be found in JSON objects are objects, arrays, strings, numbers, booleans, or the special value null. If a value at some level is an array or object, you can choose to display these complex recursive structures as "[array]" for arrays and "{object}" for objects. You can also specify a delimiter that's used to separate the extracted values. Last but not least, you can select the "Wrap Values in Quotes" option to stringify the extracted values and enclose them in double quotes. If you need to extract object keys from JSON, you can use our Extract JSON Keys tool. Json-abulous!

Extract Values from a JSON Object

In this example, we extract values from a simple JSON object containing information about the origin of an airplane. The input JSON is flat and contains just one level of data – all values are located at the root level, so we input "1" in the depth option. In the output, each value is displayed on a new line, separated by a newline character "\n".

{ "invention": "Airplane", "inventor": "Wright Brothers", "year": "1903" }
Airplane Wright Brothers 1903
Required options
These options will be used automatically if you select this example.
Depth of the objects that you
want to extract values from.
For example, "1", "1, 3", or "1-4".
Delimit extracted values with
this symbol (use \n for a
newline and \t for a tab).
Stringify extracted values
and enclose them in double
quotation marks (").
If the object's value is a nested
array or object, print "[array]" or
"{object}" as a value. Otherwise,
don't print it.

Find Values in a Nested Object

In this example, we find values in a nested object at the 2nd recursion level of JSON data. At this level, there is an object "location" which contains five keys: "address", "city", "state", "zip", and "amenities". We use a comma followed by a space ", " as a separator to create a comma-separated list of values. As the "amenities" key contains an array, which creates the 3rd recursion level, instead of traversing this array, we enable the option "Print Complex Values" and print the whole array as an "[array]" abbreviation as it's too complex to print as a simple value.

{ "name": "Coffee Shop Name", "location": { "address": "123 Main St", "city": "Anytown", "state": "CA", "zip": "12345", "amenities": [ "Free Wi-Fi", "Outdoor Seating" ] } }
123 Main St, Anytown, CA, 12345, [array]
Required options
These options will be used automatically if you select this example.
Depth of the objects that you
want to extract values from.
For example, "1", "1, 3", or "1-4".
Delimit extracted values with
this symbol (use \n for a
newline and \t for a tab).
Stringify extracted values
and enclose them in double
quotation marks (").
If the object's value is a nested
array or object, print "[array]" or
"{object}" as a value. Otherwise,
don't print it.

Extract All Values

In this example, we extract all values from a JSON object, which contains more nested objects and arrays. To traverse the entire key-value tree in its entirety, we set the depth parameter to "*" to include all depth levels. We use a newline character ( ) as a value separator and JSON-stringify the values by adding quotes to all of them.

{ "familyTree": { "familyName": "Smith", "members": [ { "name": "John Smith", "age": 45, "gender": "male", "children": [ { "name": "Emily Smith", "age": 18, "gender": "female" }, { "name": "Michael Smith", "age": 15, "gender": "male" } ] } ] } }
"{object}" "Smith" "[array]" "John Smith" "45" "male" "[array]" "Emily Smith" "18" "female" "Michael Smith" "15" "male"
