Description (partial)

Activities within iteration may get unexpected results and workflows may fail as a result. If you are using variable types other than string, the single item in the array will be populated with variables that are strings rather than the type expected / set in the Read Table from JSON activity

Utilizing the Read Table from JSON activity and the resultant array should be empty. For example if your source JSON is [] and your column is "test" The activity output will be:

  "output": {
    "activity_status": "Success",
    "response": {
      "elapsed_time": 0.133578583,
      "end_time": "2020-05-18T21:51:39.04083636Z",
      "read_table_from_json": [
          "test": ""
      "response_body": "[{\"test\":\"\"}]",
      "row_count": 0,
      "start_time": "2020-05-18T21:51:38.907257777Z",
      "succeeded": true

Notice the row_count of 0 but we got an array item. Please note that for other variable types you will still get an empty string.
