Hi everyone, I hope you could help me with one simple issue. I've started playing around with StreamSets. Very nice tool but I have faced at the beginning with box “Field Remover”. It’s not working properly as I want (maybe some restrictions I don’t know or that way I am doing it’s not allowed). First I would like to use HTTP Client to connect with REST API ( ). In the output, I have a list with 24 fields (I want to remove 21 or keep 3). After that, I am using the box Field Remover. In Option, I can pick up Keep Listed Fields. I mark 3 fields I want to keep but unfortunately, in output in this box, I have a list with 9 fields, instead of 3. The same happens if I choose Remove Listed Fields, Mark 21 fields I want to remove. Still, in the output, I can see 9 fields.

I doubt if the changes you made to your configuration did not change before you ran! I suggest you to reconfigure and double check if the changes reflected in your configurations and try running the pipeline.

1) Action: Keep listed fields

Fields: /field1name /field2name

type the fileldname as /fieldname and press enter before you mention the next field name.

2) Action:Remove listed fields

Fields: /field1name /field2name

type the fileldname as /fieldname and press enter before you mention the next field name.

Hi, thank you for a reply. I did all these steps as you mention it. Still, it doesn't work. It works incorrectly when I want to leave less than a half or remove more than a half of fields.

I cannot attach a file, I exported my pipeline. Could you check if it works?
