Microsoft SQL Server Using JSON values in reports


Once JSON values are extracted from JSON text, you can use them ina any part of the query. You can create some kind of report on JSON data with grouping aggregations, etc:

select JSON_VALUE(Data, '$.Type') as type,
        AVG( cast(JSON_VALUE(Data, '$.ManufacturingCost') as float) ) as cost
from Product
group by JSON_VALUE(Data, '$.Type') 
having JSON_VALUE(Data, '$.Type') is not null
