Performing actions on multiple nodes

Performing actions on multiple nodes

You can perform actions on multiple nodes. The actions you can depend on the type of sample data that you base the model on and on the output data type of the node.
  1. Search for nodes in the
    Find
    field and select the nodes to perform the action on in the
    Results
    list.
  2. From the
    Action
    list, select one of the following actions:
    Option
    Description
    Add Prefix
    Adds a prefix to node names. Enter the prefix in the
    With
    field.
    Add Suffix
    Adds a suffix to node names. Enter the suffix in the
    With
    field.
    Exclude
    Exclude the nodes from the intelligent structure. Data from the node is not part of the output of the model and is not parsed during run time.
    Include
    Re-include excluded nodes in the structure.
    Expand
    Expand the nodes to show portions of the model that are collapsed under the nodes.
    Collapse
    Hides portions of the model that are nested under the nodes.
    Change Type to String
    Changes the data type of the nodes to string.
    Replace
    Replaces a string in node names with the string you enter in the
    With
    field. Node names are not case sensitive. Names must be unique across sibling nodes, that is, nodes that reside under the same node.
    Discover data type by content
    Discovers the data type of numbers that are enclosed in double quotes based on the content of the node that contains the data. Applies to JSON files.
    Once you apply this action to a node or to multiple nodes, you can't select to revert to the default mode of identifying numbers that are enclosed in double quotes as strings. To re-apply the default mode you must select the sample file and discover the structure again.
    Extract Formatted Data
    Parses the formatted data that Microsoft Excel shows. Applies to Microsoft Excel files.
    Extract Unformatted Data
    Parses the underlying, unformatted data. Applies to Microsoft Excel files.
