Incorrect example of usage of Data Collector Records in JavaScript Evaluator

There is such an example in "Accessing Record Details" section:

from com.streamsets.pipeline.api import Field
record.sdcRecord.set('/new', Field.create(Field.Type.STRING, 'new-value'))
record.sdcRecord.get('/old').setAttribute('attr', 'attr-value')

But it doesn't work, it seems like it's copy-pasted from the analogous Groovy example from documentation for the Groovy processor.

Can someone kindly post a working example of usage of Data Collector Records in JavaScript Processor?

good catch - it'd be nice to use Java APIs in JS Eval but don't think that is possible

I'll open a doc bug for this... In the meantime, here is the correct code for JavaScript:

var Field = Java.type('com.streamsets.pipeline.api.Field');
records[i].sdcRecord.set('/new', Field.create(Field.Type.STRING, 'new-value'))
records[i].sdcRecord.get('/old').setAttribute('attr', 'attr-value')

Note that, as mentioned in the doc, you'll need to set Record Type to 'Data Collector Records' in the Advanced tab:
