The Route Shape is unable to recognize null values. If a document with a null value is sent into a route shape, there are several methods that should be able to recognize a null value, but nothing seems to work.

The Route Shape will route successfully if values are supplied. Instead of using the Route shape to route based on a null value, try using a Decision shape instead.

To compare a null value, select the incoming data for the First Value, set the Decision shape as Equal To
and for the Second Value, add a Static Value and leave the value field blank.
