transformations:either

EITHER TABLE

Category: Workflow / Internal


Description

Between two input datasets (the result of the previous action in the current table, and a final state of another table), Either table chooses the one that is not empty. If both tables are not empty, it gives preference based on the action settings.


Use cases

  • "If-then" types of workflows. In this scenario, the workflow should be organized in a way that makes empty either one table (when a condition is fulfilled) or another (when the condition is NOT fulfilled). Then Either table is used to pick a non-empty result dataset. Since both tables can have different sets of actions, it allows for applying different action logic depending on the condition.
  • Insertion of arbitrary datasets at any point in an action chain with the help of the Sandbox action
