Skip missing map sources with alternate values.

The problem

I have a workflow where step #2 sometimes returns errors due to invalid inputs. That leads to failures in the subsequent steps because of absence of a required key (map source, which is `Result 0` in my case).

What I expect in a subsequent step

Use `Result 0` from a successful Response of step #2, or a placeholder value ( `-` ) in case that key is missing in step #2.

The working Solution using the options offered by Pabbly Connect

  1. Enabled Ignore Error for the error-prone step (step #2). +
  2. Added a Default Value action next to the error-prone step (step #3). [ App: Text Formatter, Action: Default Value ]
With this setup, when step #2 succeeds, the required key, `Result 0` is passed through the Default Value step. When step #2 fails, i.e. `Result 0` is absent, my default placeholder value `-` is passed.
Problem solved!


The result from Task History




The combination of Ignore Error and Default Value can skip missing keys properly. Only one option alone is not sufficient.
