This example covers the following functions:

  • ARRAYSLICE - Returns an array that is a slice of another array, based on the provided starting and ending index numbers. See ARRAYSLICE Function.
  • ARRAYMERGEELEMENTS - Merges the elements of an array together into a string. See ARRAYMERGEELEMENTS Function.

Source:

The following set of arrays contain results, in order, of a series of races. From this list, the goal is to extract a list of the podium finishers for each race as a single string.

RaceIdRaceResults
1
["racer3","racer5","racer2","racer1","racer6"]
2
["racer6","racer4","racer2","racer1","racer3","racer5"]
3
["racer4","racer3","racer5","racer2","racer6","racer1"]
4
["racer1","racer2","racer3","racer5"]
5
["racer5","racer2","racer4","racer6","racer3"]


Transform:

From the list of arrays, the first step is to gather the top-3 finishers from each race:

derive type: single value: ARRAYSLICE(RaceResults, 0, 3) as: 'arrPodium'

The above captures the first three values of the RaceResults arrays into a new set of arrays. 

The next step is to merge this new set of arrays into a single string:

derive type: single value: ARRAYMERGEELEMENTS(arrPodium, ',') as: 'strPodium'

Results:

RaceIdRaceResultsarrPodiumstrPodium
