Fixing JSON Syntax Errors with the PowerShellAI Module

This is fast, simple, and easy. It’ll increase your productivity, save you time and effort, and is super accurate when working with JSON data.

In this blog post, I will explore how to use the ai function in the PowerShellAI module to help fix JSON syntax errors. The PowerShellAI module leverages the power of OpenAI’s GPT-4 language model to assist with a variety of tasks, including identifying and correcting syntax issues in JSON strings or objects.


Before diving into the tutorial, make sure you have the following prerequisites:

  • PowerShell 7 or later installed on your machine. = The PowerShellAI module installed. You can install it by running Install-Module -Name PowerShellAI in your PowerShell console.

Step 1: Import the PowerShellAI module

To start using the ai function, you’ll need to import the PowerShellAI module. Run the following command in your PowerShell console:

Import-Module PowerShellAI

Step 2: Create a JSON string with syntax errors

For demonstration purposes, let’s create a JSON string containing syntax errors:

$invalidJson = '{a","b}'

Step 3: Use the ai function to identify and fix JSON syntax errors

To use the ai function to fix the JSON syntax errors, pipe the invalid JSON string to the function. Then you specify the simple prompt to instruct the model what to do. In this case, we’ll use the prompt 'please fix the json. The ai function will then return a JSON string with the syntax errors fixed and save it to the $fixedJson variable:

$fixedJson = $invalidJson | ai ''please fix the json'

The ai function will return the corrected JSON string, which you can print to the console:

"Invalid JSON: $invalidJson"
"Corrected JSON: $fixedJson"
Invalid JSON: {a","b}
Corrected JSON: {"a":"b"}


In this blog post, we’ve demonstrated how to use the ai function in the PowerShellAI module to fix JSON syntax errors. By leveraging the power of OpenAI’s GPT-4 language model, the PowerShellAI module offers an easy and convenient way to correct mistakes in JSON strings, saving you time and effort when working with JSON data.

Now, you can integrate this powerful AI-powered JSON syntax fixing capability into your PowerShell scripts and right in the console. Don’t hesitate to explore other tasks the PowerShellAI module can perform and further enhance your productivity!
