How to make JSON Attributes optional in export mapping?

0
I have a JSON Structure like this Lines:[  {"LineNumber": "1",       "LineType": "Item",       "Quantity": "1",       "UnitPrice": "10.00",       "LineAmount": "10.00"        },        {        "LineNumber": "2",        "LineType": "Freight",        "LineAmount": "2.30"        } ] Mendix Generates the out put like this. Lines":[{"LineNumber":1,"LineType":"Item","Quantity":1,"UnitPrice":10,"LineAmount":10},{"LineNumber":2,"LineType":"Freight","Quantity":0,"UnitPrice":0,"LineAmount":2.3}]}   As you can see Quantity and UnitPrice are not needed for my Linenumber 2. How do configure my export mapping so that only fields that were declared/set in the Entity object are actually generated in output JSON.

Hi Bhanu,

Mendix will export the object as defined in the Export mapping. If the value is empty, it will be omitted, like you want. I see 2 possible solutions to get those 2 attributes empty:

  1. Change the value of the attribute to empty before you do the export mapping
  2. Change the import mapping using a microflow value mapping, checking if Quantity = 1 then return empty

 

Good luck!

Kind regards,

Johan
