Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

SplitFields class

Splits a DynamicFrame into two new ones, by specified fields.

Example

We recommend that you use the DynamicFrame.split_fields() method to split fields in a DynamicFrame. To view a code example, see Example: Use split_fields to split selected fields into a separate DynamicFrame.

Methods

__call__(frame, paths, name1 = none, name2 = none, transformation_ctx = "", info = "", stageThreshold = 0, totalThreshold = 0)

Splits one or more fields in a DynamicFrame off into a new DynamicFrame, and creates another new DynamicFrame that contains the fields that remain.

  • frame – The source DynamicFrame to split into two new ones (required).

  • paths – A list of full paths to the fields to be split (required).

  • name1 – The name to assign to the DynamicFrame that will contain the fields to be split off (optional). If no name is supplied, the name of the source frame is used with "1" appended.

  • name2 – The name to assign to the DynamicFrame that will contain the fields that remain after the specified fields are split off (optional). If no name is provided, the name of the source frame is used with "2" appended.

  • transformation_ctx – A unique string that is used to identify state information (optional).

  • info – A string associated with errors in the transformation (optional).

  • stageThreshold – The maximum number of errors that can occur in the transformation before it errors out (optional). The default is zero.

  • totalThreshold – The maximum number of errors that can occur overall before processing errors out (optional). The default is zero.
