JSON Question

How to access specific value in php and json

I'm using a token:

$url = "";

and here's the json text(not everything);

"title":"FFS Organization deal"

I wanted to display "title" and I always get an error

Notice: Undefined index: creator_user_id in
C:\xampp\htdocs\pipedrive\getjson.php on line 8

Here's my code so far:

$url = "";

$response = file_get_contents($url);
$object = json_decode($response, true);

echo $object['data']['creator_user_id']['title'];

I'm new to json so I'm just practicing and trying to figure out how to echo a specific value in php. Would be appreciated if you can explain exactly how it works when you echo from json to php.

Thank you! :)


First of all you need to debug the array after using json_decode().

$url = "";

$response = file_get_contents($url);
$object = json_decode($response, true);
echo "<pre>";
print_r($object); // this will print all data into array format.

As per this array, you do not have title index inside the creator_user_id array. title is a separate index.

Also note that, $object['data'] containing two indexes not one. you can get title as:

foreach ($object['data'] as $key => $value) {
    //print_r($value); // this will print the values inside the data array.
    echo $value['title']."<br/>"; // this will print all title inside your array.
