Duplicate data in Collection when parsing JSON

I am fetching a JSON from Flow in PowerApps and populate a collection. My JSON file looks like

{
    "ProcessName": "Staff Onboarding",
    "ProcessID": "staffOnboarding001",
    "ProcessSteps":[
        {
            "StepID": "s1",
            "StepName": "New Staff Request",
            "StepInstructions": "Submit new staff request",
            "SLADuration": 1,
            "ProcessStage": "Department Manager",
            "VisibleFields": [
                "Title",
                "ExistingPosition",
                "Motivation"
            ],
            "EditableFields": [
                "Title",
                "ExistingPosition",
                "Motivation"
            ],
            "MandatoryFields":[""],
            "ResponsibleRole": "Department Manager",
            "StepOptions": [
                {
                    "OptionName": "Submit Request",
                    "OptionVisibleFields": [""],
                    "OptionEditableFields": [""],
                    "OptionMandatoryFields": [
                        "Title",
                        "Motivation"
                    ]
                }
            ]
        },
        {
            "StepID": "s2",
            "StepName": "HR Approval",
            "StepInstructions": "Please review and approve",
            "SLADuration": 1,
            "ProcessStage": "Human Resources",
            "VisibleFields": [
                "Title",
                "ExistingPosition",
                "Motivation"
            ],
            "EditableFields": [
                "Recruiter"
            ],
            "MandatoryFields":[""],
            "ResponsibleRole": "Human Resources",
            "StepOptions": [
                {
                    "OptionName": "Approve Request",
                    "OptionVisibleFields": [""],
                    "OptionEditableFields": [""],
                    "OptionMandatoryFields": [
                        "Recruiter"
                    ]
                }
            ]
        }
    ]
}

I am returning the response from Flow via a Request - Response step in my Flow and collect it in a Collection. However, my collection has duplicate values for multiple objects and looks like

Collection2.pngCollection1.png

Let me know if I am doing anything wrong.

Rest easy...you are not doing anything wrong.  This is a known bug and discussed in this thread.

It's not really duplicated, it's just a bug in the collection viewer.

 

I hope this helps.
