Hello community, 
I am exited with new option to export Datawindow to Json format. Could you please help me to figure out how to achieve the following:

1. Exported field names are different from column names. How to specify/map the Json field names with column names?

2. I need to export some fields in boolean true/false. The logic is simple, for example, { if "current_status" is "Y" then true else false }

Please advise.

Thank you,

Hi Yuri;

  My suggestion would be to use another DWO that is configured for the correct names & data types you need. Then transfer the data from DWO to DWO transposing the required data as required. Then usr the ExportJSON() command.

  The other approach would be to use the SQL "Select" clause to name the data and transpose the data types as required into the DWO, which would now be immediately ready to export to JSON.

... it exports all columns :(

I'd think Json import/export would be implemented using template similar to XML
