Allow .json files to be stored in SharePoint Online and excluded from Blocked File Types
Right now, .json files are still not allowed to be stored in SharePoint Online.
Increasingly a lot of open source tools: github, bower, npm, Visual Studio Code. All wants to store settings in *.json files - this limitation in SharePoint Online makes it impossible to use many of these tools via WebDAV.
Thanks for your feedback! We’re happy to report that your suggestion is now available in SharePoint Online. You can upload also json files to document libraries, meaning that they are no longer blocked file types.

Yep, File Not Found is annoying

Even though it is possible to upload a json file to SharePoint online, it seems you cannot actually use it..? When you navigate to the URL it gives me the error: File Not Found.

Just came across this, but just as a work-around, if you change your file to a .JS, you can process and parse it successfully, assuming whatever parser your using can be configured to look for the .js as opposed to the .json.
