There is a bug in DATA-INTO whereby it does NOT handle empty JSON arrays.
It sounds like the same behavior I saw when reporting to IBM. They're hoping to fix by end of September - that didn't help me.
Open a PMR so you can be notified.

I have the following json ds & the data-into
Dcl-ds result qualified;
Dcl-ds transactions dim(500);
data-into result %Data(outFile
:'doc=file case=any allowmissing=yes -
I then check result.num_count > 0;
but it comes back as 0, yet there are 17 transactions.
I do a similar check in another program & the result.num_count works.
I am missing something, but I don't see it :-(
