 Explain about $, $$, $$$ in mapobject ? in MuleSo...

In MuleSoft 4 DataWeave, the symbols $, $$, and $$$ are used within the mapObject function to access and manipulate key-value pairs within an object. They represent different aspects of each pair:

$ (value):

  • Represents the value associated with the current key-value pair.

  • This is the primary element you want to access or transform within the mapObject function.

$$ (key):

  • Represents the key of the current key-value pair.

  • This can be useful for dynamic key construction or accessing specific keys within the object.

$$$ (index):

  • Represents the index of the current key-value pair within the object.

  • This can be used for ordering or filtering elements based on their position.


%dw 2.0
output application/json
payload mapObject (item, index) -> {
  upperCaseName: $.name.toUpperCase(),
  reversedKey: $$ + "Reversed",
  position: $$$ + 1

In this example:

  • $.name accesses the value associated with the name key within each item.

  • $$ + "Reversed" dynamically constructs a new key called Reversed for each item.

  • $$$ + 1 adds 1 to the index to start numbering from 1 instead of 0.

Key Points:

  • You can use these symbols individually or combine them in expressions within the mapObject function.

  • These symbols are only valid within the mapObject function and cannot be used standalone in other contexts.

  • Using these symbols provides flexibility and control when manipulating key-value pairs in MuleSoft 4 DataWeave.

Additional Notes:

  • You can access nested objects within the value using dot notation like $

  • You can use conditional logic within the mapObject function to modify values or filter key-value pairs based on specific criteria.

  • DataWeave provides other functions like map and filter that can also be used to manipulate arrays and objects, but mapObject offers more fine-grained control over individual key-value pairs.

I hope this explanation clarifies the roles of $, $$, and $$$ in the mapObject function in MuleSoft 4 DataWeave. Feel free to ask if you have any further questions or require more specific examples based on your use case!
