Property value where other property value is equal to

Hi,
I have a function node that outputs the following payload:

[[{"_id":"5f93de2accd2af06b412924d","site_id":"7f93dj27mmd2af06b7624231","name":"All","forward":"all","attr_hidden_id":"All","attr_hidden":true,"attr_no_delete":true,"attr_no_edit":true},{"_id":"5f93de2accd2af06b412924e","site_id":"7f93dj27mmd2af06b7624231","name":"Disabled","forward":"disabled","attr_hidden_id":"Disabled","attr_hidden":true,"attr_no_delete":true,"attr_no_edit":true},{"_id":"5f93de2accd2af06b412924f","site_id":"7f93dj27mmd2af06b7624231","name":"LAN","forward":"native","native_networkconf_id":"5f93de1accd8afy6g4129745","attr_hidden_id":"LAN","attr_hidden":true,"attr_no_delete":true,"attr_no_edit":true},{"_id":"5f93e137ccd2af06b4129283","site_id":"7f93dj27mmd2af06b7624231","name":"Primary Wireless","forward":"native","isolation":false,"native_networkconf_id":"8f93ed37ccd2an06b4129251","attr_no_edit":true},{"_id":"5f93e67accd2af06b41292cc","site_id":"7f93dj27mmd2af06b7624231","name":"IoT","forward":"native","isolation":false,"native_networkconf_id":"1f73p66aicd2hf06b41292c5","attr_no_edit":true},{"_id":"5f952367ccd2af06b412e782","site_id":"7f93dj27mmd2af06b7624231","name":"Guest","forward":"native","isolation":true,"native_networkconf_id":"4f95y363ccd2tf06bj12o785","attr_no_edit":true}]]

I need to obtain a property value, where the value of another property(within the same object id) is equal to a certain value.
In this case, I want to obtain the "_id" property value, where the "name" is equal to "Disabled", which should yield "5f93de2accd2af06b412924e".
I am not sure where to start; any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can use Jsonata to return the object you require.

or the direct value

Perfect! Just what I needed.
Thanks so much @E1cid

Is it possible to use a flow variable instead of a constant string?
Like instead of using:

[name="Disabled"]._id

Use:

[name=varname]._id

I tried several ways, but it is obvious that I am at subzero coding level.

sure

This relies on topic. What I have is a flow variable called state.
I ended up using the following:

payload[0][name=$flowContext("state")]._id

This seems to work fine.
Thanks for your help.

You said flow variable, i took that for any flow variable/msg part. Glad you got the answer any way.
