Apply transformers directly on variables

L4 Transporter

Hello,

I'm creating Json lists introducing data in them. I'm using "addToList" automation. The data introduced example:

listData:

{"key1":{

"subkey1: ${dataInput1},

"subkey2: ${dataInput2},

"subkey3: ${dataInput3},

"subkey4: ${dataInput4}

}

 

Is there a way to transform the variables directly in the input listData with no need to create a set for each dataInput?

Hi @Josep 

The simple answer to your question is yes, you can use transformer to write for loop to get each ${datainput} value but it's not quite simple. You will need to utilize DT (General) and to write JavaScript for loop code.

 

For the task, Get = ${dataInput} assuming this is a simple list with different items instead of a Json object.

For the Transformer, here is what you would enter:

.=>val.map(function(elem){

my_str="subkey";

tags=elem{'dataInput};

tagnames="";

for(i=0;i<tags.length;i++){

my_str=my_str+i=","

tagnames=tagnames+tags[i]+",";}

return {my_str.slice(0,-1):tagnames.slice(0,-1)}})

 

Obviously, I cannot guarantee that this DT will work for your incident since there are a few variables that I would need to know and this will require testing in your instance. I would suggest to play around with DT.

 

Good luck!
