Number of times a value appears in a object

Hi, hope this find you well. I have an object like the one in the image bellow, and I would like to know the number of times a value appear in a certain key. So, In the key "Type" I would like to have an output like "Lemon : 4 times" or if it's with the key "Price" it should be like "12: 3 times, 15:1 time".

Any help will be appreciate it. Thank you.

Welcome to the forum!

I was waiting for someone to provide a Javascript function node example, that can iterate over all of the fields and summarize by value... however, since that has not happened, here is the way I would do it using a change node with a JSONata expression (which is a rather advanced lambda syntax, but ideal for just this situation).

If you know which fields you want to aggregate, it can be as simple-looking as this:

payload.* {
    "FARMER": { FARMER: $count(FARMER) },
    "TYPE": { TYPE: $count(TYPE) },
    "PRICE": { $string(PRICE): $count(PRICE) }

which is human-readable terms means: for each object in the payload fields, count each field by value"

Since you did not include any actual data in your post, I did not spend the time to type it in so I could actually test it out -- but that should be close to correct. Just make sure to choose the J: expression option in the pulldown for the change node.

If you get stuck, post some sample data so we can try to help you out some more...

Thanks for the explanation, I really appreciate your reply.

I'm taking this data from Firebase using a http request node. I read the data in an object format but also I can convert it to json using the json node. My data looks like that:


Again, thanks for the reply.

So did you try using that expression inside a change node?

Here's what it looks like in my editor:

It works perfectly. Thank you so much.
