Re: DGLux Convert table to JSON

You want to use a "Make Object" block (under "Logic"). It will take in each of the fields from the table and generate JSON as the output. See here for more info on page 91:

Basically:

  1. Add the "Make Object" block to your dataflow
  2. Click the plus to create an input parameter and match it to a column name and data type from your table
  3. Repeat step 2 as necessary to define all the table parameters you need
  4. Open the table and drag the fields to the input parameters you just created on the "Make Object" block
  5. The "outputObj" property will have the JSON string you want
