Problem formatting string to json

New Member


I have the following String that is logged by the application and I am wondering if there is a way to pretty print it just like the rest of the logs.

Here is the raw data :

{"timestamp":"2020-11-10T15:27:02.187Z","level":"INFO","thread":"main","logger":"ca.nbc.payment.pmtinternationallibrary.config.MyApplicationContextInitializer","message":"{\"code\": \"CODE\",\"text\":null,\"origin\":null,\"rule\": \"RULE\"}","context":"default"}

I guess it has something to do with the characters being escaped but I did not find anything that got it to work properly.

I would like to have something like : 

"timestamp": "2020-11-09T20:54:57.245Z",
"level": "INFO",
"thread": "main",
"logger": "ca.nbc.payment.pmtinternationallibrary.config.MyApplicationContextInitializer",
"message": {
    "code": "CODE",
    "text": null,
    "origin": null,
    "rule": "RULE"},
"context": "default"
