Description

Hi
I have a lot of JSON (not GeoJSON) files with data, in some cases with coordinates. I would like to be able to use them in QGIS, specifically import and flatten them in a processing model.

QGIS supportes json datasources, what is this request really for? https://www.gdal.org/drv_geojson.html

The files are not GeoJSON files. An example:

{
"meta" : {
"Version" : "1.0",
"Create time" : "2018-08-30 18:40:02 UTC"
},
"units" : [ {
"dn" : "ou=test,ou=Org,o=xyz",
"attributes" : {
"countryName" : "SE",
"createTimestamp" : "20180504113600Z",
"creatorsName" : "cn=improxy,ou=System,o=test",
"hsaCountyCode" : "14",
"hsaIdentity" : [ "test" ],
"hsaMunicipalityCode" : [ "1480" ],
"modifiersName" : "cn=admin,ou=System,o=test",
"modifyTimestamp" : "20180829082917Z",
"ou" : [ "xyz" ],
"vgrAo3kod" : [ "501" ],
"vgrModifyTimestamp" : "20180618080954Z",
"vgrModifyersName" : "cn=user,ou=Personal,o=test"
}
}, {

I don´t see a way of opening (and flattening) it in QGIS. How do I do that?

This are the supported vector formats via OGR (there are other formats that have a native provider in QGIS);
