Sending slider value inside template

Is it possible to send a variable in response to get request ????

[{"id":"1c7fe071.dd4f98","type":"tab","label":"api sim","disabled":false,"info":""},{"id":"42d886d.2fab478","type":"http in","z":"1c7fe071.dd4f98","name":"","url":"hello","method":"get","upload":false,"swaggerDoc":"","x":310,"y":280,"wires":[["b67cda5d.60cae"]]},{"id":"b67cda5d.60cae","type":"template","z":"1c7fe071.dd4f98","name":"","field":"payload","fieldType":"msg","format":"json","syntax":"mustache","template":"{\"payload\":50}","output":"str","x":610,"y":300,"wires":[["1c83adb8.a01502"]]},{"id":"1c83adb8.a01502","type":"http response","z":"1c7fe071.dd4f98","name":"","statusCode":"","headers":{},"x":1040,"y":300,"wires":[]}]

If i understand your query, yes

e.g.

here is a photo from the the flow , i am trying in this project to exchange data between node red and ESP32 through GET/POST requests every 1 second and i will try to send data packet between both . i didn't like MQTT very much i find HTTP more flexible . does anyone have any idea why such a concept isn't common do i miss something ???? is there anyway also to send the variable value inside JSON object like this {"val" : payload } ??? i could send the response just by converting the payload to JSON

[{"id":"232bf664.c42c4a","type":"http in","z":"6fcc3140.459a2","name":"","url":"hello","method":"get","upload":false,"swaggerDoc":"","x":90,"y":580,"wires":[["5ef3947b.cea06c"]]},{"id":"5ef3947b.cea06c","type":"change","z":"6fcc3140.459a2","name":"","rules":[{"t":"set","p":"payload","pt":"msg","to":"{\"slider\":$flowContext('slider')}","tot":"jsonata"}],"action":"","property":"","from":"","to":"","reg":false,"x":320,"y":580,"wires":[["c7c1897c.129798","121c5c2c.a20bbc"]]},{"id":"c7c1897c.129798","type":"debug","z":"6fcc3140.459a2","name":"","active":true,"tosidebar":true,"console":false,"tostatus":false,"complete":"payload","targetType":"msg","statusVal":"","statusType":"auto","x":890,"y":400,"wires":[]},{"id":"121c5c2c.a20bbc","type":"http response","z":"6fcc3140.459a2","name":"","statusCode":"","headers":{},"x":740,"y":580,"wires":[]}]

you can create the object in the change node.

thanks again , your help was tremendous .it is even faster now maybe because i was fetching the whole document before
doc.as<long>();

but now i am fetching the JSON object like this : doc["slider"].as<long>());
in which section in node red documentation is this way of accessing a value like {"slider":$flowContext('slider')} explained ????

It is explain in the JSONata site as the change node can use JSONata expressions

this is a text literal representation of a object, The $flowContext() is retrieving the value from context store.
