Checking for the presence of an array

Hi Folks,


So to check for the presence of an array (i.e. that there is at least 1 item in the array), as far as I'm aware you need to do a formula to check the length of it. i.e.


array.length (<-formula)

greater than (<-condition)

0 (<-value)


Doing just an 'is present' condition doesn't work. Is there something else simple like this that I'm missing?


(and Hi - first post on the Community!)

We can check the size of an array in the 'If condition'.

Hi David,


I normally use the "List Size" datapill when I do my conditions, but I set them up very similar to what you posted.


.present? might help you depending on your desired output.

Thanks - I should have elaborated that I'm doing that in an 'if conditon'. Main question was really whether there is another way other than looking at the list size/length. Another platform I use can check arrays with an 'exists' condition (equivalent to the 'is present' in Workato).

Ah, OK - thank you Rob (my previous post was not in reply to yours)
