Data Mapper Component

Map input values to output values using a specified mapping

Component key: data-mapper

Description#

The data mapper component allows you to apply a map to a value or list of values. This is handy if you have a list of items, and would like to categorize each item.

For example, if you have a list of input that reads:

["apple", "orange", "carrot"]

and a map that reads:

{  "apple": "fruit",  "blueberry": "fruit",  "carrot": "vegetable",  "green bean": "vegetable",  "orange": "fruit"}

then a value list mapper action would output ["fruit", "fruit", "vegetable"].
