AWS Glue Studio now offers 5 new visual transforms: Flatten, Format timestamp, To timestamp, Add identifier, and Add UUID. AWS Glue Studio offers a visual extract-transform-and-load (ETL) interface that helps ETL developers to author, run, and monitor AWS Glue ETL jobs quickly. With this new feature ETL developers can prepare data for analysis faster without having to write any code.

The 5 new transformations solve a variety of data situations: flatten can extract data from nested structures, format timestamp converts raw strings into a timestamp of a specified format, to timestamp can convert an epoch or ISO string into a timestamp, and add identifier or UUID both help provide unique keys when they don’t previously exist. Finally, these new transforms work in both visual and code-based jobs.

This feature is available in the same AWS Regions as AWS Glue.
