Dictionaries are used to map a list of values to another list of values, arranged as key/value pairs. Both the keys and values can be an object or a string of text; key entries can also be defined as a regular expression.

Dictionaries are used in Pipe robots to normalize data. For example, if you need to map certain typo's to their actual counterpart or if you want to look up a certain SKU in a dictionary to get the proper name for a product, this can all be done using the dictionaries.

To create a new dictionary,

  1. Select the Projects view.
  2. Select the top-right New button.
  3. Choose Dictionary.
