util::Status util::MessageToJsonString(
        const Message & message,
        std::string * output,
        const JsonOptions & options)

Converts from protobuf message to JSON and appends it to |output|.

This is a simple wrapper of BinaryToJsonString(). It will use the DescriptorPool of the passed-in message to resolve Any types.


util::Status util::JsonStringToMessage(
        StringPiece input,
        Message * message,
        const JsonParseOptions & options)

Converts from JSON to protobuf message.

This is a simple wrapper of JsonStringToBinary(). It will use the DescriptorPool of the passed-in message to resolve Any types.


util::Status util::BinaryToJsonStream(
        TypeResolver * resolver,
        const std::string & type_url,
        io::ZeroCopyInputStream * binary_input,
        io::ZeroCopyOutputStream * json_output,
        const JsonPrintOptions & options)

Converts protobuf binary data to JSON.

The conversion will fail if:

1. TypeResolver fails to resolve a type.
2. input is not valid protobuf wire format, or conflicts with the type
   information returned by TypeResolver.

Note that unknown fields will be discarded silently.


util::Status util::JsonToBinaryStream(
        TypeResolver * resolver,
        const std::string & type_url,
        io::ZeroCopyInputStream * json_input,
        io::ZeroCopyOutputStream * binary_output,
        const JsonParseOptions & options)

Converts JSON data to protobuf binary format.

The conversion will fail if:

1. TypeResolver fails to resolve a type.
2. input is not valid JSON format, or conflicts with the type
   information returned by TypeResolver.

struct JsonParseOptions

#include <google/protobuf/util/json_util.h>
namespace google::protobuf::util

Members

bool
ignore_unknown_fields
Whether to ignore unknown JSON fields during parsing.
bool
case_insensitive_enum_parsing
If true, when a lowercase enum value fails to parse, try convert it to UPPER_CASE and see if it matches a valid enum. more...
JsonParseOptions()

bool JsonParseOptions::case_insensitive_enum_parsing

If true, when a lowercase enum value fails to parse, try convert it to UPPER_CASE and see if it matches a valid enum.

WARNING: This option exists only to preserve legacy behavior. Avoid using this option. If your enum needs to support different casing, consider using allow_alias instead.

struct JsonPrintOptions

#include <google/protobuf/util/json_util.h>
namespace google::protobuf::util

Members

bool
add_whitespace
Whether to add spaces, line breaks and indentation to make the JSON output easy to read.
bool
always_print_primitive_fields
Whether to always print primitive fields. more...
bool
always_print_enums_as_ints
Whether to always print enums as ints. more...
bool
preserve_proto_field_names
Whether to preserve proto field names.
JsonPrintOptions()

bool JsonPrintOptions::always_print_primitive_fields

Whether to always print primitive fields.

By default proto3 primitive fields with default values will be omitted in JSON output. For example, an int32 field set to 0 will be omitted. Set this flag to true will override the default behavior and print primitive fields regardless of their values.


bool JsonPrintOptions::always_print_enums_as_ints

Whether to always print enums as ints.

By default they are rendered as strings.
