How to put a result.json() in a variable

Hi! I’m doing this tutorial in a web page (, but I have to do it with a postgreSQL result, an async function (the “await” is already inside the function).

export const getPais = async (req:Request,res:Response): Promise<Response>=> {
const response: QueryResult = await pool.query(‘SELECT * FROM paises’);

    return res.status(200).json(response.rows);

    return res.status(500).json('Error Interno');

¿How can I put it in a variable?

Thank you.

Hello there,

I think that if you save the variable with the await keyword it will work. It should look something like this:

const data = await(result.json)

Let me know if this works.
