I am trying to get a json object from my email template using SSJS. Here is my code:

 <script runat=server>

   var responseContent = HTTP.Get('https://api.myjson.com/bins/o9qvd');

   var resp = Platform.Function.parseJSON(responseContent);
   var name = resp.name;

here is the url I am calling: https://api.myjson.com/bins/o9qvd

and here is the error I am receiving:

Unable to retrieve security descriptor for this frame. Line: 5 Char: 3 var resp = Platform.Function.parseJSON(responseContent)

then I plan to get the name value using Ampscript inside my html as below:

This worked for me. Have to use [0] for the response.

var content = Platform.Function.ParseJSON(result.Response[0]);

It's Platform.Function.ParseJSON(), with a capital "P" in Parse.

Also, you only need to parse the Content property of the response object.

<script runat=server>
var response = HTTP.Get('https://api.myjson.com/bins/o9qvd');
var content = Platform.Function.ParseJSON(response.Content);
Write("<br>Name:" + content.name);

Using a cloudpage and Write() to see the output is often the best way to debug this type of issue.
