JSON Response as String

Describe the problem/error/question

Response received from the HTTP Request node is showing as string, but when checked with Postman it is JSON

What is the error message (if any)?

Instead of directly showing as json it is wrapped inside the “data” and shows as string

Because of this problem, this json is not accepted in the ItemList node. How to make sure json from the API is accepted to the ItemList node?

Hey @Arvindwill,

Can you share the workflow so I can check the node version? You may be able to work around this by Adding the response option and setting it to JSON.
