Unexpected character encountered while parsing value: P. Path error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have created a console application which is sending json request and getting response and i am deserializing it using JsonConvert.DeserializeObject and getting output value .

    It is running fine when I ran it  from console application(.exe).I then,change it to a class library(.dll) and adding it as assembly in SQL Server along with its dependent assemblies.

    Finally as per the requirement, I create a scalar valued function and returning the response as output .But when i execute it i get this below error.

    A .NET Framework error occurred during execution of user-defined routine or aggregate "GetSSNByPerNerTest": 
    Newtonsoft.Json.JsonReaderException: Unexpected character encountered while parsing value: P. Path '', line 0, position 0.
       at Newtonsoft.Json.JsonTextReader.ParseValue()
       at Newtonsoft.Json.JsonTextReader.ReadInternal()
       at Newtonsoft.Json.JsonTextReader.Read()
       at Newtonsoft.Json.Serialization.JsonSerializerInternalReader.ReadForType(JsonReader reader, JsonContract contract, Boolean hasConverter)
       at Newtonsoft.Json.Serialization.JsonSerializerInternalReader.Deserialize(JsonReader reader, Type objectType, Boolean checkAdditionalContent)
       at Newtonsoft.Json.JsonSerializer.DeserializeInternal(JsonReader reader, Type objectType)
       at Newtonsoft.Json.JsonConvert.DeserializeObject[T](String value, JsonSerializerSettings settings)
       at <Dllname>.<MethodName>()

    Any help would be really useful.

  • Greetings Prateek,

    So your question is:
    What kind of code is in the function "GetSSNByPerNerTest" that my JSON-response does not get processed.

    The answer:
    We don't know.

    But to help you;
    JsonConvert.DeserializeObject  expect a JSON-object not a file-path.

    with kind regards,

  • Hi Sebastian,

    The response I am getting is a Json-string object and then i am deserializing it using below code.

    Where Rootobject is class which has same properties as json reponse.

           var root = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<RootObject>(response);

    But the same code works fine when i ran it as console application,but gives me above posted error when I am calling it from a scalar function which has same name as method name i.e GetSSNByPerNerTest.

  • Hi Prateek__,

    According to your description, it works well on console application, but it doesn't on a scalar function. Please check the input arguments when you call the scalar function. In addition, If you still have the issue, Could you please provide a simple demo which could reproduce the issue. it helps to resolve the issue.

    Best regards,
