see if that helps:
awk -F '("|:)' 'NF>1 {print $2,$5}' config.json

I'm afraid there quite some open questions, like
- which combinations from that config file entries do you need,all permutations from the 10 - 15 entries?
- which section of the file should be used, or is there just one?
- how are you going to use the results, source them in
- are you sure the host part and the DB part will be joined by a / ?
