JSON Parse Output: How to access properites from Child Object

Hi, 

I have source JSON with an array of "Entities", each Entity has several properties and one property is of type "Object" (see below). I am parsing the json below with the provided schema.  I can get any direct property of an Entity to render in the table, but what notation is required to get a property of an object, that is a property of an Entity? If I put status in as a column I end up with a chunk of JSON - since I'm parsing the object with the schema I'm thinking there must be a way to reference those properties so I can render them into a table.  Thanks in advance for any guidance! 

 

Flow:

The desired output into table that would be something like this: 

Type

Status.LastExportDate

Status.LastExportStatus

Account

2018-12-01T11:51:02.6910357Z

Success

New_a

2018-06-13T20:51:33.1164211Z

Success

 

Actual Table using the above flow: 

Type

Status

Account

{"Type":"account","ProfileId":"898bbc15-5a77-4a8f-821a-9949fe3f226d","TotalNotifications":1647531,"SuccessNotifications":1647531,"FailureNotifications":0,"LastExportDate":"2018-12-01T11:51:02.6910357Z","LastExportStatus":"Success","EntityMetadataState":"Created","ExpectedInitialSyncNotifications":0,"InitialSyncState":"Completed","VersionNumber":28326699,"ChangeTime":"2018-12-01T11:50:56","MetadataVersionNumber":28283951,"MetadataChangeTime":"2018-11-30T14:17:03"}

New_a

{"Type":"new_a","ProfileId":"898bbc15-5a77-4a8f-821a-9949fe3f226d","TotalNotifications":33,"SuccessNotifications":29,"FailureNotifications":4,"LastExportDate":"2018-06-13T20:51:33.1164211Z","LastExportStatus":"Success","EntityMetadataState":"Created","ExpectedInitialSyncNotifications":0,"InitialSyncState":"CompletedWithFailures","VersionNumber":0,"ChangeTime":"0001-01-01T00:00:00","MetadataVersionNumber":22345017,"MetadataChangeTime":"2018-06-13T20:51:27"}

    "InitialSyncProcessCompleteTime": "2017-03-30T21:27:00.157"
  }
]

The expression of LastExportDate as below:

items('Apply_to_each')['Status']['LastExportDate']

 

The expression of LastExportStatus as below:

items('Apply_to_each')['Status']['LastExportStatus']

 

The flow would run successfully as below:
