-The //Set Variables to JSON// action lets you set a set of variables from a [[manual:​JSON]] ​JSON dictionary.+The //Set Variables to JSON// ​(v9.0+) ​action lets you set a set of variables from a [[manual:​JSON]] dictionary.
 +{{ set-variables-to-json.png?​nolink&​591x157 | Set Variables to JSON  }}
 +The action will take a specified prefix and a JSON container (dictionary or array) and will set variables based on the prefix and the field names or array indices to the corresponding values.
 +For example, with prefix `JSON` and JSON dictionary `{ "​first"​ : "​John",​ "​last"​ : "​Smith"​ }`, the action will set variable `JSONfirst` to `John` and `JSONlast` to Smith.
 +The prefix should either be empty, or be a valid variable name with optional trailing space.
 +===== Action Options (Gear ⚙ Menu) =====
 +You can control what text processing happens in the JSON field by selecting one of these options from the Gear Menu:
 +* Process Text Normally (process text tokens and backslash characters)
 +* Process Text Tokens Only (process text tokens but not backslash characters)
 +* Process Nothing (process neither text tokens nor backslash characters)
 +You can select Pretty JSON result mode, which affects the variable values for entries that are themselves JSON containers (See the [[manual:​JSON]] user manual section).
 +You can select Strict JSON result mode, which affects the variable values for entries that are plain strings (See the [[manual:​JSON]] user manual section).
 +And you can optionally have all the non-matching variables with the specified prefix removed (as long as the prefix is not empty).
 +===== See Also =====
 +See the [[manual:​JSON]] user manual section for more details on JSON.
