I need to de-serialize an array that looks like this [“1”,”2”,”3”]

and use it in a loop 

how can I turn my string array into a k2 useable reference or variable

you can use the Split, inline function.

@Deon this is nice, however It will split like this:

I was actually wondering if there was a way to deserialize these values into some kind of enumerable on k2s side

since we are passing this array in as a datafield for this workflow

Unfortunately, the workflow variables are simple types (string, bool, number) etc. so it cannot be arrays or complex objects. Any chance you can just pass in “1,2,3” as the start value?

Can you try to remove the ‘[‘ and ‘]’ (first and last character) of the array before using split function ?
