Working with bson in tibble


What is a proper way of dealing with binary json column data from mysql database?

Hi, that is not gonna work. Dunno what the bson contains, so I can't post it freely. At the same time I don't understand its structure hence I am not able to recreate it as reprex. If I would be able to do that, I could as well solve the problem myself. Catch 22 sort of. I wanted to know whether anyone got bson from mysql in this exact format & what did they do with it to decode.
Thanks anyway.
