Using SelectFields to remove most data property keys

You can create a subset of data property keys from the dataset using the SelectFields transform. You indicate which data property keys you want to keep and the rest are removed from the dataset.

Note

The SelectFields transform is case sensitive. Use ApplyMapping if you need a case-insensitive way to select fields.

To add a SelectFields transform node to your job diagram
  1. (Optional) Choose Transform in the toolbar at the top of the visual editor, and then choose SelectFields to add a new transform to your job diagram, if needed.

  2. On the Node properties tab, enter a name for the node in the job diagram. If a node parent is not already selected, choose a node from the Node parents list to use as the input source for the transform.

  3. Choose the Transform tab in the node details panel.

  4. Under the heading SelectFields, choose the data property keys in the dataset that you want to keep. Any data property keys not selected are dropped from the dataset.

    You can also choose the check box next to the column heading Field to automatically choose all the data property keys in the dataset. Then you can deselect individual data property keys to remove them from the dataset.

  5. (Optional) After configuring the transform node properties, you can view the modified schema for your data by choosing the Output schema tab in the node details panel. The first time you choose this tab for any node in your job, you are prompted to provide an IAM role to access the data. If you have not specified an IAM role on the Job details tab, you are prompted to enter an IAM role here.

  6. (Optional) After configuring the node properties and transform properties, you can preview the modified dataset by choosing the Data preview tab in the node details panel. The first time you choose this tab for any node in your job, you are prompted to provide an IAM role to access the data. There is a cost associated with using this feature, and billing starts as soon as you provide an IAM role.
