Trying to convert a single JSON object that contains multiple records. Using /RestResponse/result as the 'Field to Parse" in a 'Data Parser' processor with 'Mulitple Values Behavior' set to 'split into multiple records' results in an error.

Cannot parse the field '/RestResponse/result' as type LIST is not supported

{ "RestResponse" : { "messages" : [ "Total [2] records found." ], "result" : [ { "name" : "Afghanistan", "alpha2_code" : "AF", "alpha3_code" : "AFG" }, { "name" : "Zimbabwe", "alpha2_code" : "ZW", "alpha3_code" : "ZWE" } ] } }

If you're looking to create multiple records off /RestResponse/result, you can use Field Pivoter. Here's a sample pipeline based on your input:

Thank you, that is what I was looking to do. I also found this excellent blog post.
