Comment 1. In such cases, we create an array, as shown below, and use it. But what if we need it in a large size, something like 10,? The same situation has happened to me in a Transform Message component while I was trying to work on a function that takes an array of numbers as input payload and sends to batch job. To test my batch step performance, I needed a big payload array like 1, This is how I was able to figure out how to create an array using DataWeave directly.
At the same time, I didn't want to go for a Java method just to test my functionality. Integration Zone. Over a million developers have joined DZone. Let's be friends:.

It performs an aggregation operation on the elements of the array after performing a lambda operation optional on each of its element. It can be used to create a Scalar, A Map or an Array. We use the reduce operator to do this kind of transformation, in addition to various other types.
For the reduce operations, an accumulator should be chosen according to the aggregate result we want to achieve. The accumulator can be viewed as the output variable.
It contains the output after all the iterations over the array on which reduce is applied. Suppose we want a string as an end result then a string accumulator needs to be taken, if the end result needs to be an array then accumulator should be an Array and so on. Similarly, if the end result needs to be an Object then accumulator should be an Object. We can execute a lambda over each element of the array to get a modified element and add it continuously to the accumulator.

Stack Overflow for Teams is a private, secure spot for you and your coworkers to find and share information. I am receiving a payload from an API call, and I need to transform a single value into an array with a single element. The when statement is incomplete. On one hand, the otherwise operator is missing.
On the other, is anything else after payload. Also, a comma is needed after the Name field. You may remove the 2nd Loanoptions as shown below mentioned in solution if you dont want to display anything when loanTerms is not present in input.

You can reference the DataWeave 2. The drop, take, and slice functions are useful for extracting an Array subset of an existing Array.
We can relate all of these functions back to another strategy for getting subsets of an Array: arr[n to m]. The main difference between these functions and using slice notation is how out-of-bounds input is handled. If you try to access indexes that are out-of-bounds using slice notation, the expression will return null. As long as you provide the correct type of input to drop, take, and slice i. The drop function can be used to effectively remove n number of items from the beginning of an Array.
This is akin to arr[n to -1] in slice notation. In the event that you pass a number less than one, DataWeave will return the same Array. In the event that you pass a number greater than the number of items you have in the Array, drop returns an empty Array:. While this feature will prevent you from getting an IndexOutOfBoundsException, it also means you will need to handle the scenarios in which you would have anticipated this exception to occur.
So instead of this:. While you use drop to remove items from the beginning of an Array, you use take to get the first n items from the beginning of an Array. This is akin to arr[0 to n] in slice notation. The rules for what happens when you specify an out-of-bounds index for take are slightly different than drop. In the event that you pass a number less than one, take will return the same Array.
While drop can get you items from some point in the middle of an Array to the end and take can get you items from the beginning of an Array to some point in the middle, slice covers both of those use cases plus the ability to extract items from one point in the middle of an Array to any other point in the middle of an Array. Note that with slice, the first index gets included in the output Array whereas the second index gets excluded.
In other words, we get the Array from and including index 1, up to and excluding index 3. What are the rules are if you specify indexes that are out-of-bounds? What happens if we take the arr defined above, but try to slice up to index 20? Finally, what happens if we completely mix up the inputs so that the first index we provide is greater than the second? Lastly, a subtle but important observation is we cannot use negative indexes with slice to count from the back of the Array like we can with slice notation.
In other words:. These functions give you, the client, much more flexibility in deciding when to stop dropping and taking items from the input Array. If you find yourself wanting to use drop or take but need a criterion for when to stop dropping or taking that cannot be defined by an index alone, use dropWhile and takeWhile.
These functions are both used to remove items from the beginning of an Array. However, dropWhile asks for a function to define when it should stop dropping items from the Array, whereas drop takes an integer representing the index where it should stop dropping. The function you pass to dropWhile should take in a single parameter and return a Boolean.In this tutorial, we will be diving deep on how to build more complex data transformations using DataWeave. Many developers that are using DataWeave have experience using mapfilterand reduce to build complex data transformations.
Map allows developers to create a new array by applying a transformation function to each element of the input array, and filter allows developers to create a new array with elements that are removed from the input array. Map is a powerful tool that allows developers to customize one set of data from one data source to another. Lastly, the reduce function understands how to reduce a string, number, object or array, and output that results in a single value.
All of these functions are highly beneficial when developing integrations using DataWeave, and by the end of this tutorial, you should have a better understanding on how to use mapfilter and reduce in your DataWeave code. In DataWeave, there are multiple instances where you will need to output a list of elements from an array but not based on the index.
In DataWeave, we have special syntax known as dynamic elements which allows you to add the result of an expression key-value pair of an object. In the example below, we return all of the entries in the array that match with the string in the conditional.
First, we call the array by payload. The dollar sign variable allows the code to gain access to each item in the array. Map is one of the most used functions in DataWeave and helps integration developers perform complex transformations that would have been previously a challenge. The map function in DataWeave is used when we want to modify elements in an array and perform a series of tasks on each entry.
Map essentially transforms one payload into another format which is desired by the target endpoint. In order for the map command to work, we must be calling the map function on a data type structured as an array.
In the below example, the input is formatted in JSON and the data is wrapped in an array. When the map command is run on the input, we specify that we want a Full Name field instead of a separate FirstName and LastName field. In order to achieve this transformation, we mapped the payload by specifying the desired output format in our DataWeave script.
In the demonstration below, the sample input data has all of its elements listed under accountTypewhere there are two sub-sections, users and admins. Inside of each of these arrays is user information which includes the person's Name and Company. The goal is to list out ONLY the data under the users array which will be remapped under the array named accountInfo. To achieve this transformation, we start off by defining that we want to map the payload.
In this example, we use the single dollar sign to list out the elements in each object. In the example below, we changed the multi-selector to now only look at the admins fields, and additionally added an index for the output. Name to grab only the name elements out of the input. Company to the accountInfo array as well. The mapObject function processes both keys and values, and returns an object with the key-value pairs that result from processing the object through the function.
In the example below, the mapObject iterates through the accountType array and returns each key which are users, and admins in this case. In the output, each value is nested under each key based on the structure in the input payload.
Each value is sorted and displayed under the key that the data originally was found. The mapObject function requires the input payload to be an object. If you look at the mapObject output vs the map output, you will notice that mapObject returns an object while map returns an array.
The pluck function is an alternative to the mapObject function. Pluck is used to map objects and return the resulting payload into an array. Pluck works by iterating over an object and returning an array of keys, values or indices from the object. In the demonstration below, we are formatting the output in the same format as the mapObject example. The main difference between Pluck and mapObject as demonstrated below is the output is an array instead of an object.
The filter function iterates over an array and applies an expression that returns matching values of that expression. The expression must return either true or false, and if the expression provided has no matches, the output will return an empty array.Joshua Erney.
Getting started with DataWeave: Part II
In the 4. These functions and their corresponding doc pages are:. Joins are all about relationships between items in two sequences of data. They are a means of collecting two separate but related pieces of data into a single unit.
That query is joining data from the invoices table and the customers table into a single result set that contains data from both. Imagine we have an invoices table that looks like this:. As you can see, the result set is a combination of the two tables.
Each row is an instance where invoice. The join functions in DataWeave share the same spirit as SQL joins but the input and output are different. As input, the join functions take two Arrays much like how SQL joins take two tables. In SQL, we deal with two-dimensional data. SQL tables only have rows and columns. In DataWeavehowever, we can have as many dimensions as the language allows.
Our rows and columns can additionally have more rows and columns. Imagine a heavily nested XML element, for example.
Because of the potential for handling data that is n-dimensional, DataWeave must supply a more flexible way of specifying an ID. Like anywhere else in DataWeave where we need a ton of flexibility in how we do something, functions will be the tool for the job.
In addition to the two input Arrays, the join functions take in two functions that are meant to identify where to find the ID of an element in each Array. We can cover this once and understand the basis of how all the join functions work because all the join functions are higher-order functions that take in functions to define the IDs.
We would use the following lambda to specify how to find the ID:. When I say this function defines how to find the unique identifier for each item in the Array, I just mean that if you feed each item in the Array to the function, you should get back the ID.
You should be able to pass that same function to map and get back a list of IDs for your input Array highly recommended for debugging :. In our example above, we have a two-dimensional data structure, just like a SQL table.
