Import mapping flatening - map with parent


Quite often in XML and JSON messages, the attributes are broken down into many sub-elements.

To keep the domain model clean, we want to agregate many dispatched attributes to one single Mendix entity.

IT’s possible to address this use case by using a microflow on the element, but we have to assign the microflow on every attributes.

Microflows are still making sense for more elaborate use cases.

But here the case is quite simple, it would be much more intuitive and faster for the developer to have an option to map attributes to a parent object.



the solution today is to create a microflow on every elements, it receives the parent object and return it without doing anything

Yes, please. Came across lots of use-cases for this.
