I have a requirement where the data from external system is fetched and upserted back in Salesforce.

below is my apex class:

public class RESTClass {
    public static void RESTClass() {   
        String jsonbody = '{ ' +
            '"username": "<username>",' +
            '"password": "<password>"' +
            '}' ;
        HttpRequest req = new HttpRequest();
        req.setHeader('Content-Type', 'application/json');
        req.setEndpoint('<user auth endpoint>');
        Http http = new Http();
        HTTPResponse res = http.send(req);
        String response = res.getBody();
        UserAuthJSONParser jsondes = (UserAuthJSONParser) JSON.deserialize(response, UserAuthJSONParser.class);
        HttpRequest policyreq = new HttpRequest();
        policyreq.setEndpoint('<main endpoint>'); 
        policyreq.setHeader('Authorization', 'Bearer ' + jsondes.value.token);
        Http policyhttp = new Http();
        HTTPResponse policyres = policyhttp.send(policyreq);
        String policyresponse = policyres.getBody();
        JsonParser objJsonParser = (JsonParser) JSON.deserialize(policyresponse, JsonParser.class);
        JsonParser.cls_value clsValue = objJsonParser.value;
        Map<String, JsonParser.cls_data> clsDataMap = new Map<String, JsonParser.cls_data>();
        for(JsonParser.cls_data objClsData: clsValue.data){
            clsDataMap.put(objClsData.id, objClsData);
        list<policy__c> updatelist = new list<policy__c>();
        for (String eachIdFromMap : clsDataMap.keySet()){
            policy__c policy = new policy__c(
                unique_id__c = clsDataMap.get(eachIdFromMap).id,
                agent_id__c = clsDataMap.get(eachIdFromMap).agentId);
        upsert updatelist unique_id__c;

When I run the above class, I can able to see the output but on few occassions, I am getting following error

System.JSONException: No content to map to Object due to end of input

Can anyone please let me know if I am missing anything from my class which is causing this error.


  • if at all possible, Json.deserialize into an ApexType rather than use JsonParser and this will avoid these issues

In policyresponse you might be getting an empty string '' or a whitespace string ' '.

You can do a anonymous apex and check with this code:

JsonParser objJsonParser = (JsonParser) JSON.deserialize('', JsonParser.class);


JsonParser objJsonParser = (JsonParser) JSON.deserialize(' ', JsonParser.class);

Do proper String null, empty and Blank check before deserialize method. String class in Apex has a isNotBlank method which checks for all three. You can use it then do your deserialize logic.


  • thanks for the solution!
