Overview 

This Data Flow template has one main Data Operation that allows app builders to combine Variables by passing data through this Data Flow.

In Connection Builder, Data Flow templates can be found with pre-populated sample data. However, to meet the requirements of their Journey, app builders should perform the necessary adjustments, such as adding other Data Ops.

Basic Transform Operations

This Data Flow contains three main parts:

Inputs

The Start pane keeps track of the inputs required by the Data Flow. 

  • Sample Inputs:
    • first_name Variable of type Text.
    • Last_name Variable of type Text.

Transform Data Operation

  • Transform Expression: Airscript expression to combine Variables using the CONCAT function.
  • Output Format: Variable
  • Type: Text
  • Run Results: transform output Variable of type Text that is automatically created to hold the results of this Operation.

Output

The End step is where variables from the Data Flow can be used as an output.

  • Sample Return Value: transform of type Text.

Use Cases

  • Allow app builders to combine Variables in AirData.
