Hi @rarroyo1 

 

You are getting this error because the values inside the array is of type string and the Create HTML action requires key-value pairs.
Please follow the below screenshot and parse the returned response to get the values in a separate array and then pass it to the the Create HTML action.
 
In the Parse JSON function, pass the array that you have received as a string values.
Expression used to get the keys:
Split(items('Apply_to_each'),'"')[3]
Split(items('Apply_to_each'),'"')[7]
3 and 7 corresponds to the index of the values.MicrosoftTeams-image (64).png

 

 

Hope this Helps!
