As we transition from Data360 Analyze Script to the widely-used Python language, many of our nodes that previously used Data360 Analyze Script have been superseded by new Python-based nodes, see Superseded nodes.

If you are familiar with the Python language, you can use Python script to configure and tailor Python-based nodes in Data360 Analyze. The new Python-based nodes run against a Jython implementation of the 2.7 version of Python.

If you're new to Python and would like to learn more about the language, there are many resources available online, for example

In this section, you will find information on the Data360 Analyze-specific Python functions and how we bind our records and metadata, as well as the custom Python modules that are provided with Data360 Analyze, see:

Data types and mapping

The following table is aimed at users who are familiar with Data360 Analyze Script and outlines how the Python data types are mapped to the corresponding Data360 Analyze data types:

Python Data360 Analyze
bool boolean
int int
long long
float double date
datetime.time time
datetime.datetime datetime
str string
unicode unicode

Note that Python auto-promotes types in case of overflow. Therefore, it may be possible that, for example, after obtaining an int value from an input record, and modifying it, it can no longer be assigned to an int field on an output record. In such cases, the node will error and indicate that the field is too large for the target field type.
