Set Property doesn't work on Object Variables

I am setting a JSON object and updating the Properties of the object as required by null or '' value, but next step i try to use the property set by me , it shows no change and it regains the old previous value.


I believe the object should be kept updated , every time we add / set the propoerty values .

Set All properties Old values [Step 6]Set All properties Old values [Step 6]Initialize Object [Step 1]Initialize Object [Step 1]Property Title Set to '' [Step 3]Property Title Set to '' [Step 3]Property Summary Set to '' , Title old value recalled .[Step 4]Property Summary Set to '' , Title old value recalled .[Step 4]Set Property Proposal Date to '', Title -Summary Old values recalled. [Step 5]Set Property Proposal Date to '', Title -Summary Old values recalled. [Step 5]Set all Properties Value [Step 2]Set all Properties Value [Step 2]

Note: The above formula is used to reference the Title property of the JSON object, if you want to reference the ProgramSummary property, please type the following formula:



The flow works successfully as below:9.JPG
