Chrome browser plugin or other method?

I'm not sure what you need exactly but from what I understand you may be able to use the read screen contents action.

Firefox(Android) supports Tampermonkey be default, and Firefox Nightly supports other extensions too including Violentmonkey.

You can read any pages using userscripts and then send what you want to MacroDroid by calling Webhook.

Thank you for the good advice. I coped by building a block of actions. The solution was simple.
Best regards.

How to read a page from a browser? It must be an action using a browser.
I guess it's because of the Cloudflare protection.

If you don't need unattended batch process, that approach could makes sense and simple. Because your target was just JSON string which shown in the browser as plain text. For your information, normally that kind of things are not called as pages.

By the way this is for my information, is that Action Block just works fine without any assistance? Copying by UI interaction doesn't seem to work like that on my devices.

You're right, clipboard operations don't work . What confused me was that the clipboard was filled with json text blown up there earlier. I don't know if copying from simple text from a browser is possible. Unfortunately, only manually inserting json text works. The operator has blocked the service through a captcha supported by JavaScript and CloudFlare. Therefore, you can only use the browser. I like to play Lotto, so I need up-to-date and quick information. So far, the script from HTTPRequest has worked great for me.

This is log for my problem. How do I do select All for text in the browser?

Instead of selecting the text with UI Interaction long click (which should work) you can use the read screen contents action to get this easily. You can then copy to clipboard if needed using the set clipboard action.

😟 I knew your macro wouldn't work. I'm sure that anyone with basic knowledge of MacroDroid would have realized that the macro looks somewhat strange.

I think your first thought was headed to the right direction. The approach I mentioned can achieve it very reliably, and relatively easily at the same time. Unattended batch process is also possible.

For example, when the website is opened and then right after passed the Cloudflare challenge, send every recent results to MacroDroid is possible. You can get several JSONs at once no matter how many you want(it may needs slowing down to avoid to be blocked when request massively).

If you want just simple semi-auto assistance not automation, other methods using accessibility service also may work in any way. But those will unnecessarily increase the complexity too much and likely not reliable. Moreover there's much chance to stop working by various unexpected changes. Therefore I never recommend to implement it by using UI-related features unless your goal is having an assistant for repeated manual work.

There are many tutorials and examples for general usage of userscripts. I'll give you answers when need something specific about your challenge!

I would also like to receive more detailed instructions on how to perform MD with userscript (tamper, violent...). So excited. Thanks for ur info. 😌

And where can I find MD's own webhook examples?
