Convert msg.payload from sql node to an array for bar chart

Hello, I am new to the node-red community. I am currently trying to display data from an sql database in a bar chart.
I have an sql table with two columns : client (name of the client) and nbconnexion (number of times this client logged in).
By doing the follwing sql query :

SELECT name as client, count(*) AS nbconnexion
FROM `ConnexionTime`
GROUP BY client
LIMIT 10

I get the following table :

Now I want to display this data by doing a barchart using the ui_chart node.

How do I convert the msg.payload to an array for it to be displayed in the chart ?

Something like this may help you.

It uses JSONata in a change node, you could do similar with Javascript in a function node.

JSONata expression

[
  {
  "labels": [$$.payload.client],
  "data":[[$$.payload.nbconnexion]],
  "series":[]  
  }
]

How could I do this in a function node in Javascript. I am very familiar with JSON and when I copy/paste your expression I get a syntax error for the '$$'

Use JSONata (J:) not JSON


Javascript

msg.payload = [
  {
  "labels": msg.payload.map(e => e.client),
  "data":[msg.payload.map(e => e.nbconnexion)],
  "series":[]  
  }
]
return msg;

Oh I see it works now ! Thank you for your help
