Expect Script to read a Json FIL for IP to run the script

GauravG asked:

Hello I am in a situation where I want to fetch IP from a Json file, which is provided by another team and run a expect Script (which I have prepared already) to get the data like ram & cpu info etc.

So basically once the ip is extracted from a Json file my script will ssh into the server and run few commands.

Can we achieve that? If yes how?

I appreciate early answers as I am in asap condition.


My answer:

You can use the jq command to extract arbitrary fields from a JSON file.
