Linebreak in JSON Data causes Syntax Error

Hi Pabbly Experts,

I have an API returned with the following JSON response:

JavaScript:
const response = [{"text": "This is a sample\nwith newlines\nand more."}]

However Pabbly could not process such linebreak data and results in the error:
SyntaxError: Invalid or unexpected token

Tried with Text Formatter with no avail as well.

Any pointers?

Can you please try using the same JS code on the online compiler once and then let us know?

Hey @AeroFi

During the automation process, an error occurred in my Code step, displaying "SyntaxError: Invalid or unexpected token." To resolve this, please kindly wrap the new line "\\n" characters from your JavaScript code line breaks in `` wrapped strings won't break the syntax in JSON. This adjustment will help rectify the syntax issue and ensure smoother execution of the code.

I might have a problem here as I cannot separate the value from the key when dealing with the response from the API.. It comes bundled together in one object.
