Hi @sebme, let me see if I understand this correctly:
You’d like to use the value of the variable target_material_list—which is itself an array value returned by a connector function—to act as a filter for a second connector function. The place you’re struggling is that connector functions return arrays, and you cannot pass an array into an input field for a connector function. So you’re in a situation where you need to convert the array to type TEXT so that the ISIN filter will function.
Hi John, yes, your understanding would be correct.
In the meantime I found a workaround solution either through a custom widget which does the required pre-parsing or - what our implementation partner suggested - going by concatenating the array and feeding it into a partially completed array string…
Neither workaround is particular pretty, so it would be really helpful if in the near future one would be able to directly feed arrays into the “isIn” (or “notIn”) filter.
Hi @sebme, glad you were able to find a work around in the interim.
I just checked in with the team that manages connectors, and they’re working on building functionality that will allow you to pass arrays and objects into connectors. I’ll be sure to post back as this work progresses.
