JSON_MODIFY FUNCTION IN SQL SERVER 2016


In my previous blog posts, we learned about the ISJSON() , JSON_VALUE() and JSON_QUERY() functions in details. 

ISJSON() – Verifies that the input text has valid JSON data

JSON_VALUE() – Extracts scalar value from the JSON text.

JSON_QUERY() – Extracts an object or array from the JSON text.

However there might be scenarios where you might need to manipulate/modify the JSON string. In SQL Server 2016, there is a new function named JSON_MODIFY which will assist you to modify the value of a property in the JSON string and return the modified string.
