Python. calling value from list of dictionaries


Code:
{"name": "code",
"version": "1.2",
"last_upload": 156,


"connections": [
{
   "name": "system2",
   "mode": "server",
   "state": "good",
   "status": "up",
   "timeout": 2
},
{
   "name": "system1",
   "mode": "server",
   "state": "good",
   "status": "up",
   "timeout": 2
}
]}
Using python how do I print or change values as
connections-->name
or connections-->satus

Thank you.

Thank you!

how about the {} on outer most loop ?
So its probably dict.(lists(dict))
like dict in that dict. there is list named connections and in that list "connections" there are 2 dictionaries again.

this structure came about from command

Code:
values = json.loads(TMP)
          
          print
          print values
          print values["name"]
this prints "code"

I want to print and work on

value->connections->name

Just save values['connections'] in a variable, or use it directly in a for-loop.
It is a list, after all.
Code:
for v in values['connections']:
    v['name'] = 'new name'
