The filter() method creates a new array with all elements that pass the test implemented by the provided function.

Approach 1: This approach uses filter() method to filter the nested object in JavaScript.

Example:

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<body>
    <h2>Output</h2>
    <p id="Output"></p>
  
    <script>
        var nestedObject = [
            {
                itemId: 1,
                itemDetails: {
                    name: "C",
                    caregory: "Programming Language",
                    price: 500,
                },
                itemCategory: "Basic",
            },
            {
                itemId: 2,
                itemDetails: {
                    name: "C++",
                    caregory: "Programming Language",
                    price: 700,
                },
                itemCategory: "Beginner",
            },
            {
                itemId: 1,
                itemDetails: {
                    name: "Java Script",
                    caregory: "Web Development",
                    price: 1500,
                },
                itemCategory: "Advanced",
            }]
        let itemNames = nestedObject.filter(
            eachObj => eachObj.itemDetails.price === 1500);
  
        document.getElementById("Output").innerHTML
            = JSON.stringify(itemNames);
    </script>
</body>
  
</html>


Output:

In the above example, only “JavaScript” is the name of the course with price “1500”.

Approach 2: This approach uses some() method to filter the nested objects. The some() method tests whether at least one element in the array passes the test implemented by the provided function. It returns a Boolean value.

Example:

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<body>
    <h2>Output</h2>
    <p id="Output"></p>
  
    <script>
        const fruitData = [
            {
                name: "Apples",
                details: [
                    {
                        fruitId: '1',
                        gradingDetails: [{ grade: 'A' }]
                    },
                    {
                        fruitId: '2',
                        gradingDetails: [{ grade: 'B' }]
                    }
                ]
            },
            {
                name: "Oranges",
                details: [
                    {
                        fruitId: '3',
                        gradingDetails: [{ grade: 'B' }]
                    },
                    {
                        fruitId: '4',
                        gradingDetails: [{ grade: 'D' }]
                    }
                ]
            },
        ];
  
        let output = fruitData.filter(eachVal => {
            let opt = eachVal.details.some((
                { gradingDetails }) => gradingDetails
                .some(({ grade }) => grade === 'A'));
            return opt;
        })
        console.log(output);
        document.getElementById("Output").innerHTML =
            JSON.stringify(output);
    </script>
</body>
  
</html>


Output:

In the above example, the fruitId is 1 for “Apples”and grade is “A”. But for Oranges neither of them satisfies the option.
