How do I express an empty array in Hiera?

I need to override the default value of class parameter for a module which expects an array. I can do this easily enough with traditional Puppet code:

class { 'foo':
  bar => []

However, I would like to have all the parameters in Hiera using the automatic class parameter lookup. Can this even be done? BTW, I'm using YAML format.

Meh! Stupid formats that try to avoid the syntax of a language, only to circle back and use it anyway. I should have done my web search with "empty yaml array" instead of "empty hiera array". Turns out this is as easy as:

foo::bar: [ ]
