Defining outputs for Unbundle By Name

How do I define the outputs for an Unbundle By Name object if the input cluster is not defined until it executes?  I have the output from a Unflatten From JSON object connected to the input of an Unbundle By Name object.  The JSON string is not defined until it executes.  If I temporarily create a cluster that defines the names and connect that to the Unbundle By Name, I can define the outputs, but as soon as I disconnect the cluster, the Unbundle By Name outputs change to type Void.  Any ideas?

You can't.


Clusters are defined at edit time.  There is no such thing as defining them during execution.

Ok, I figured it out.  The Unflatten From JSON object has a type/defaults input where you connect a cluster just to define the names.  Then the names get passed to the Unbundle By Name.

Yes.  That info is in the context help.
