Configure filter conditions

Configure filter conditions

You can define filter conditions to project a subset of the input data in the Hierarchy Processor transformation. You can filter based on incoming fields or output fields.
You can configure a filter condition to read data from primitive fields into an output array or struct field when the data in the array or struct field must correspond to the data in a sibling field in the output group.

Filter configuration example

You want to convert relational data to a JSON file. The incoming data is in a relational table that contains orders information. The orders table contains multiple rows for each order because each order can contain several products.
The incoming data looks like the following data:
OrderNumber,ProductName,ProductType,NumberOfItems,PricePerItem 12345,M&Ms Candies Chocolate Peanut Party Size - 38 Oz,Candy,2,14.49 12345,Stella Parm Shredded Cup - 20 Oz,Dairy,1,10.99 12345,AHA Sparkling Water Blueberry Pomegranate - 8-12 Fl. Oz.,Beverages,1,3.33 23456,Weetabix Biscuit Cereal Whole Grain 2 Count - 14 Oz,Breakfast & Cereal,2,4.99 23456,Producers Milk Lowfat 1% - Half Gallon,Dairy,1,2.79 23456,Egglands Best Eggs Cage Free Large Brown - 12 Count,Eggs,1,4.99
You want to read the product details into an array, where the product details are associated with a particular order number.
The following image shows the structure of the incoming and output fields:
The image shows the Hierarchy Processor tab of the Hierarchy Processor transformation. The Incoming Fields panel contains one input group with the following fields: OrderNumber, ProductName, ProductType, NumberOfItems, and PricePerItem. The Output Fields panel contains one output group with the following fields: OrderNumber (string) and ProductDetails (array). The ProductDetals array contains the following fields: ProductName, ProductType, NumberOfItems, and PricePerItem.
In the Output Fields panel, set the data source for the Output group to
Input
, and configure the group by field as
Input.OrderNumber
to remove duplicate records from the output. Set the data source for the ProductDetails array to
Input
.
To ensure that the details in the ProductDetails array correspond to the order number in the output, configure the following filter condition for the array:
:fld.{Input.OrderNumber}= :fld.{Output.OrderNumber}
To further refine the records, use an AND condition in the filter. For example, to exclude records in which the product type is "Candy," configure the following filter condition:
:fld.{Input.OrderNumber}= :fld.{Output.OrderNumber} AND :fld.{Input.ProductType} != 'Candy'
The output contains one record for each order, and incoming records with the product type "Candy" are excluded.
The output data contains the following records:
{ "OrderNumber":"12345", "ProductDetails":[ { "ProductName":"AHA Sparkling Water Blueberry Pomegranate - 8-12 Fl. Oz.", "ProductType":"Beverages", "NumberOfItems":"1", "PricePerItem":"3.33" }, { "ProductName":"Stella Parm Shredded Cup - 20 Oz", "ProductType":"Dairy", "NumberOfItems":"1", "PricePerItem":"10.99" } ] } { "OrderNumber":"23456", "ProductDetails":[ { "ProductName":"Egglands Best Eggs Cage Free Large Brown - 12 Count", "ProductType":"Eggs", "NumberOfItems":"1", "PricePerItem":"4.99" }, { "ProductName":"Producers Milk Lowfat 1% - Half Gallon", "ProductType":"Dairy", "NumberOfItems":"1", "PricePerItem":"2.79" }, { "ProductName":"Weetabix Biscuit Cereal Whole Grain 2 Count - 14 Oz", "ProductType":"Breakfast & Cereal", "NumberOfItems":"2", "PricePerItem":"4.99" } ] }
