How to access data from previous snaps

Hi Have a pipeline where i get data from a triggered task. For testing and dev purpose, I am reading the data from files as the first step. In one of the snaps i am calling another pipeline to query servicenow after the query I want to use the data which got in the first snap and the child pipeline to perform another action. But right after the call to child pipeline i added a mapper and in the mapper I only have access to the data which returned by the child pipeline and the data that was sent to the child pipeline. How can i assess data from first snap or any other snap

Hi @vkandalam

If you move the first Mapper Snap inside the child pipeline, you will be able to access the documents from the XML Parser in Mapper 1, by accessing the $original object.

Hi @AleksandarAngelevski Thank you for your reply. This will solve the issue at this stage, but I am going to have a few more calls to other databases and child pipelines and after making these calls I will need to be able to access the information that i had in the previous snaps or the data that was generated in child pipelines. It won’t be in a linear function. Any snap that i can use which will give me access to data which was generated in any snap in this execution context?

You might consider this approach:

But you have to be aware of the data size, because the Gate Snap keeps the data in memory which can lead to high memory usage of the snaplex.
