Annotation Type JsonIgnoreProperties


@Target(value=TYPE)
@Retention(value=RUNTIME)
public @interface JsonIgnoreProperties

Annotation that can be used to either suppress serialization of properties (during serialization), or ignore processing of JSON properties read (during deserialization).

Example:

 // to prevent specified fields from being serialized or deserialized
 // (i.e. not include in JSON output; or being set even if they were included)
 \@JsonIgnoreProperties({ "internalId", "secretKey" })
 // To ignore any unknown properties in JSON input without exception:
 \@JsonIgnoreProperties(ignoreUnknown=true)

Only applicable to classes, not for properties (getters, setters, fields).

1.4

ignoreUnknown

public abstract boolean ignoreUnknown
Property that defines whether it is ok to just ignore any unrecognized properties during deserialization. If true, all properties that are unrecognized -- that is, there are no setters or creators that accept them -- are ignored without warnings (although handlers for unknown properties, if any, will still be called) without exception.

Does not have any effect on serialization.

Default:
false
