Mapper vs. JSON Splitter

Did you know that you can use the Mapper snap to the same effect as JSON Splitter?

There are some other reasons why you may want to use JSON Splitter.

First of all let’s look at how mapper can achieve similar functionality of JSON Splitter

To achieve the same split, in the mapper, just drag the array into the left hand expression and map it to $ in the right hand side target path. Basically this will split the array elements into the outgoing documents.

Using JSON Splitter however, you get additional benefits of including scalar parents as well as including different output paths as part of the split.

Attached is an example (simple one of course).
