I have a json column in MySQL which contains a list of items for eg.

"style": {"style1", "style2", "style3", "style4", "style5"}

I want to search all the rows which contain the styles I specify through an array like IN clause like WHERE style IN(["style1", "style3"])

So I want to get all the rows which will match the string items from array exactly like how the WHERE IN() clause works in MySQL.

Is there any workaround or easy way to get this working?

Please help.. Thanks

    The tables and models have already been setup and I don't have any control over it. I was looking for JSON_CONTAINS, JSON_SEARCH but could not find a satisafactory solution. I have updated the question and added a little more description of what I want.

  • Small point of order, but your example JSON should use [] instead of {}. Just in case that's compounding the issue...

I solve this problema using MySQL JSON_TABLE – Map a JSON object to a relational database table.
