The new (v9) Conversion tool for mapping structures to one another, is a good improvement, but it would be great improvement when we could also use functions and variables in it.


I'm wondering what would be the expected behaviour, if you were converting Lists of Structures instead of Structures. In the particular scenario of CurrDateTime(), would you expect all the elements to have the exact same DateTime (given a big enough list)?

CurrDateTime is just a sample function, i want to have the ability to use variables and (user) functions in my mapping. Now you have only the attributes of the source entity.

I want to have the ability to use variables and (user) functions, and expressions in my mapping.

Sample expression:

Record1.Value 1 = Record2.Value1 + "(" + ToUpper(Record2.Value2) + ")"

Hi!


I'm happy to announce that your idea is already available on the last release of the OutSystems platform 10.


Thank you for your time and collaboration in making OutSystems platform better.
