Can't set variable from Parse JSON output

I'm building a flow that pulls together data from different SharePoint lists and uses it to populate a Word template.


One of the pieces of data that I'm trying to use is from a managed metadata column, so I have to use "Send an HTTP request" to access it.


I'm trying to use "Parse JSON" to get the variable that I need out of the output of the HTTP request, and the output from that seems to be fine. However, when I try to set the variable to one of the values from the JSON output, it surrounds it with an apply to each for results and then errors out.


Any ideas why this might be the case? Thanks!
