ProdIdProdCategoryProdNameProdKeysProdProperties
S001ShirtsCrew Neck T-Shirt["type", "color", "fabric", "sizes"]["crew","blue","cotton","S,M,L","in stock","padded"]
S002ShirtsV-Neck T-Shirt["type", "color", "fabric", "sizes"]["v-neck","white","blend","S,M,L,XL","in stock","discount - seasonal"]
S003ShirtsTanktop["type", "color", "fabric", "sizes"]["tank","red","mesh","XS,S,M","discount - clearance","in stock"]

Transformation:

When the above data is loaded into the Transformer page, you might need to clean up the two array columns.

Using the following transform, you can map the first element of the first array as a key for the first element of the second, which is its value. You might notice that the number of keys and the number of values are not consistent. For the extra elements in the second array, the default key of ProdMiscProperties is used:

Transformation Name New formula
Parameter: Formula type Single row formula
Parameter: Formula ARRAYSTOMAP(ProdProperties, ProdValues, 'ProdMiscProperties')
Parameter: New column name 'prodPropertyMap'

You can now use the following steps to generate a new version of the keys:

Transformation Name Delete columns
Parameter: Columns ProdKeys
Parameter: Action Delete selected columns

Transformation Name New formula
Parameter: Formula type Single row formula
Parameter: Formula KEYS(prodPropertyMap)
Parameter: New column name 'ProdKeys'
