Hi, I am working on a project and need to change some records value conditionally using field replacer. Is it possible to use expression evaluator to create a column to suggest if there is a transformation of a row where 0 = no transform, 1 = transform?

Are you looking for a built-in way that will tell you if a record has changed or just a way to create a new column and set its value conditionally in Expression Evaluator?

I am looking for a way that can create a new column 'flag_transform' and set its value (1/0) based on whether the value of any other fields is changed.

Creating a new column and setting its value conditionally is def easy to do. But the trick is in comparing before and after values because the original values aren't stored/retained. Can you update your question and add more details about your pipeline, processors being used, and use case?
