Thread: Value Mapper boolean inputs

  1. #1

    Default Value Mapper boolean inputs

    I've just tried to use value mapper to convert True to one string and False to another. But I can't find out what source value to enter into the list
    I've tried
    true
    t
    y
    yes
    Y
    Yes
    1

    and the equivalents for false, but none seem to work.

    Any suggestions, or should I raise a Jira?

    Y/N normally... make a small transformation starting with a row generator to show us your problem.

    Hi Sven,

    Upload as a jir

    OK - two things
    1. It fails for null input, not for true / false

    2. reading the manual again it says "this step maps string values..."
    so presumably it's not actually supposed to work

    But probably the problem needs fixing, or it shouldn't let me do it in the first place
    and possibly the manual needs updating
