Using 'null' in the data to be plotted

I’ve seen some codepens where datapoints in the ‘y axis’ are being replaced by ‘null’, so that they are not plotted, however I can’t find anything about using null in the reference/docs.

Is this acceptable practise?

Example - https://codepen.io/quantumThinker/pen/BQjzoM

Yes null is valid in JSON.
And in Plotly figures it often means skip this point.

Thank you, it’s unfortunate that it’s not documented in the Plotly guide to avoid confusion.
