Since JSON functions mostly parse text, it seems unlikely that they would not work due to PSOS. Unless your install of FMCloud is still v15, it would seem unlikely that fmCloud would be at fault here either.
Check your script for server compatibility and look at other PSOS issues such as context and script triggers that might be at fault.
In the Script Workspace, toggle the script compatibility tool in the top right corner to "Server" and check to see if any of your steps are flagged as incompatible.
The FileMaker help says that the JSON functions are incompatible ONLY with a runtime solution.

A quick question to the Filemaker community. Are the new native FM 16 json functions supported on FM Cloud via PSOS?
No. FM Cloud is still based on the FM15 platform.
Thanks wimdecorte. I suspect that you are correct (ie not compatible with FMcloud yet) . The only difference in the two script instances is where it was run. There were no local or global variables that the script was dependent on; it was simply reading info from a table with json text. I'll probably convert the json functions to MBS functions.
FYI, the version of FM Cloud that I'm running is 188.8.131.52. Does anyone know when a FM16 based FM Cloud will be released?
Note that we offer virtual servers running full versions of FileMaker Server 16 at competitive prices to AWS/FileMaker Cloud, without the hidden charges as well. Please contact me at jmay(at)pointinspace.com for further details.

Correct! There were/are several custom functions used for JSON before the built-in ones in FM16. Perhaps these can be leveraged in FMC*?
p.s. *sorry strange acronym! FMC reminds me of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle that was built in Santa Clara, CA.
Thanks Beverly. I've switched functionality over to MBS which works fine in FM Cloud. My frustration with FM Cloud is, and has been, the lack of detailed documentation. They've got the big concepts documented quite well, but smaller details like this aren't documented (as far as I've been able to find). A simple statement stating that FM Cloud is based on FM15 would have sufficed.
Enough bellyaching and back to work! Thanks again everyone!
