Depivot json with different number of attributes

How does one depivot a json file that has two different categories, with some shared and some unshared attributes that leads to different attribute counts? 

Does one have to split the file before de-pivoting or is there a better way of selecting the attributed for de-pivoting?

I have attached the process as well as the json file. 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><process version="9.7.002">

    @Robi_Me, try this process in dev environnment, the second output and third output of the SUPER JSON to DATA show the XML parameters for depivot and the first output try to automate the depivot process (it's working for a little nested json but it's not working for big nested json)

    Hi @Robi_Me,

    this looks like a use case for the JQ extension.

    @BalazsBarany this looks very promising, the only problem is that it comes up with a security violation on the free version of Studio. 
    I have set the the enhanced permissions in Start Up,, any idea what could be causing this issue.?
