Array Syntax in Flows

I am trying to create an array from a string using the array() funtion in flows, and cannot figure out the syntax to do so. Is this something that is possible?

Hey there - It looks like you just drop the value that you want in there:

 

array(triggerBody()['text'])      so, the stuff in the () is what you want to be in the array.  I imagine there's some formatting you'd have to do to the string, though.

Hi @Joe2 

 

array accepts only 1 argument that can be of type string

 

example array('test')

will result in ["test"]

 

If you need more values,

use createarray (this can accept values of any type)

 

createarray('1','2')
output 
[
"1",
"2"
]
