Map Objects

This DataWeave example uses both the map and mapObject functions to iterate through the input and set all of the keys to upper case. Before you begin, note that 2.x versions of DataWeave are used by Mule 4 apps. For DataWeave in Mule 3 apps, refer to DataWeave version 1.2 examples. For other DataWeave versions, you can use the version selector in the DataWeave table of contents.

The example uses these DataWeave functions:

  • map to go through the elements in the "books" array.

  • mapObject to go through the keys and values in each of the objects of the array.

  • upper to set each key to upper case.
