Overview

This Processor allows to rename one or multiple columns from an input dataset.

Input

The Processor works on any valid dataset.


Configuration

Within the configuration it is possible to select a column of the input dataset and choose its new name. It looks like this:


The column to rename can be selected from the drop-down menu (default value is the first column).


Note that, if the name of the new column already exists within the set of other columns, a Validation Error is thrown.

Output

The Processor returns a table containing the same entries as the input dataset except for the modified column names.

Example
