Converter Example

function convert(json) {
  return JSON.parse(json) { // iterate through all results
    var workflowState = '[ NONE ]'; // default workflow state if there is none
    // Sadly, we now have to check if the state is there. It's a long chain.
    if (result.metadata && &&
      && &&
      && {
      workflowState =;
    return {
      "Page ID":,
      "Page Title": result.title,
      "Workflow State": workflowState
