Consider also passing in the shell variable (EMAILID) as a jq variable (here also EMAILID, for the sake of illustration):
projectID=$(jq -r --arg EMAILID "$EMAILID" ' .resource | select(.username==$EMAILID) | .id' file.json)
For the record, another possibility would be to use jq's
env function for accessing environment variables. For example, consider this sequence of bash commands:
[email protected] # not exported EMAILID="$EMAILID" jq -n 'env.EMAILID'
The output is a JSON string:
