Can't input json object into Dart parser function

Issue

I’m returning a json object from a post request and want to parse it to a dart model. I have already generated the dart model and fromJson function.

factory Did.fromJson(Map<String, dynamic> json) => Did(
      id: json['id'] as String,
      docHash: json['docHash'] as String,
      pubKey: json['pubKey'] as String,
      privKey: json['privKey'] as String,
      credential:
          Credential.fromJson(json['credential'] as Map<String, dynamic>),
      message: json['message'] as String,
      success: json['success'] as bool);

This is only an extract from my model but the part were I get the error The argument type 'dynamic' can't be assigned to the parameter type 'Map<String, dynamic>'. I’m tryingto parse the reponse to the dart object after creating the post request in the bloc repository:

var res = await dio.post("http://did-backend.herokuapp.com/create",
    data: {
      "firstName": firstName.trim(),
      "lastName": lastName.trim(),
      "email": email.trim(),
      "phoneNumber": phoneNumber.trim(),
      "dateOfBirth": dateOfBirth?.toIso8601String(),
      "sex": sex.trim(),
      "address": address.trim(),
      "city": city.trim(),
      "state": state.trim(),
      "postalCode": postalCode.trim(),
      "country": country.trim()
    },
    options: Options(headers: {
      Headers.contentTypeHeader: "application/json",
    }));
if (res.statusCode == 200) {
  final json = jsonDecode(res.data.toString());
  print(Did.fromJson(json));
  return Did.fromJson(json);
}

The decoded json object is of type dynamic so I can’t pass it into the Did.fromJson() function.
How do I have to transform the Dio response to pass it into the fromJson function?
Edit:
This is my model which includes the fromJSON function
Did.dart
Edit 2:
The response of the Dio post request which is not parsed yet:
print(res)

Solution

If you’re sure of the type, you just need to make it explicit by typecasting via the as keyword (https://dart.dev/guides/language/language-tour#type-test-operators).

For example:

final json = jsonDecode(res.data.toString()) as Map<String, dynamic>;
print(Did.fromJson(json));
