In most cases, it is used to initialize or set variables.

The type depends on the data handled by the array.

You can change the contents of the function by clicking on the purple icon.

When dynamic content or variables are used in expressions, special specifications are required.

In this case, array variables [100,200,300,400,500] are provided as examples.

If we do "take(variables('array variables'),3)" as in the example, the result will be [100,200,300].
