DropFields class - AWS Glue

DropFields class

Drops fields within a DynamicFrame.


We recommend that you use the DynamicFrame.drop_fields() method to drop fields from a DynamicFrame. To view a code example, see Example: Use drop_fields to remove fields from a DynamicFrame.


__call__(frame, paths, transformation_ctx = "", info = "", stageThreshold = 0, totalThreshold = 0)

Drops nodes within a DynamicFrame.

  • frame – The DynamicFrame to drop the nodes in (required).

  • paths – A list of full paths to the nodes to drop (required).

  • transformation_ctx – A unique string that is used to identify state information (optional).

  • info – A string associated with errors in the transformation (optional).

  • stageThreshold – The maximum number of errors that can occur in the transformation before it errors out (optional). The default is zero.

  • totalThreshold – The maximum number of errors that can occur overall before processing errors out (optional). The default is zero.

Returns a new DynamicFrame without the specified fields.
