Generate Separate UUID for JSON array of objects

Generate Separate UUID for JSON array of objects

Explorer

Hi All,

 

I am trying to generate separate UUID for JSON array of objects. I tried to use ${UUID()} in JOLT specification, but this is generating same UUID for all the elements.

 

e.g.

Input:

===============

{
  "aliases": [
    "Alias1",
    " Alias2"
   ]
}

 

JOLT Specification

=====================

[
{
"operation": "shift",
"spec": {
"aliases": {
"*": "alias[&0].name"
}
}
},
{
"operation": "modify-default-beta",
"spec": {
"alias": {
"*": {
"id": "${UUID()}"
}
}
}
}
]
Current Output:

=====================

"alias" : [ {
"name" : "Alias1",
"id" : "2948446b-6213-44ba-b81f-c4e5f7dab2eb"
}, {
"name" : " Alias2",
"id" : "2948446b-6213-44ba-b81f-c4e5f7dab2eb"
} ]

 

Any pointers will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Biswa
