How do you use an Expando Object in Decisions? I haven’t found any steps that take it as an input in order to extract data or edit it. I was looking at the JSON steps provided and one of them named JSON to Dynamic looks useful, but I can’t do anything with the Expando Object output. When I debug and show the output of the step it shows the output as structured type data, so the generic JSON deserialization or whatever you guys do for the debugger I/O still works. It just isn’t accessible as a complex type in the flow data. Thanks for any information!

The expando object type can't currently be used within Decisions. If it is coming in through a JSON input, you could create a defined data structure with the same fields as the expando object and convert the JSON to the defined data structure, whether by deserializing it or manipulating the JSON text itself. Outputting an expando object in JSON would require a text merge to create the JSON text.
