    Hi @Prapul Kumar Dongari ,

    Thank you for posting query in Microsoft Q&A Platform.

    It would have been easy to guide you exact expression to use if you have shared full output json of lookup activity.

    But still, assuming You are getting entire json shown in question under value property array of look up activity output json. You should consider using writing below expression to pass events array to ForEach acitivity.
    @activity('<your lookup activity name>').output.value[0].events

    ForEach activity iterate over items in the events array. Inside Foreach if you would like to access every item then use @item() expression.

    For example, If to get policyholderLocator property inside Foreach, use below expression.

    Please check below video to get more idea of writing expressions.

    Le JSON se présente sous la forme d'une chaîne de caractères —utile lorsque vous souhaitez transmettre les données sur un réseau. Il a donc besoin d'être converti en un objet JavaScript natif lorsque vous souhaitez accéder aux données. Ce n'est pas vraiment un souci puisque le JavaScript fournit un objet global JSON disposant des méthodes pour assurer la conversion entre les deux.
