Definitions with multiple data types in Open Api 3

I'm working on building documentation for an API I recently built but I've run into some trouble with using the Swagger Editor.

I have a parameter that accepts multiple types but I can't seem to find a good way to reflect that in the documentation. Example of what I want:

    type: "object"
        type: "string"
        type: "string"
        type: "string[]"
        type: "string"
        type: "string[]"

I've tried using oneOf and additionalProperies but I keep getting errors of 'duplicated map key' or my properties will start to disappear from the preview pane - indicating my code is problematic.

Does anyone have any ideas? I've searched forums & stack overflow but can't seem to find a solution that actually works for me.
