  • How to assign secondary insurance to a variable?

    Primary insurance name is Medicare. Secondary is Anthem PPO. When using the drag and drop variable mapping, the XML path is exactly the same.

    How can I assign variable "secondaryins" to IN1|2| 4.1

    IN1|1|PLANID1|2620|Medicare|PO Box 182932^^Columbus^OH^43218||||||||||PI|LASTNAME^FIR STNAME|1|19481228|411 5th Street Ne^^Barberton^OH^44203||||||||||||N|||||291467782A
    GT1|1||LASTNAME^FIRSTNAME||411 5th Street Ne^^Barberton^OH^44203|3307454123||19481228|M||1|| |||

      Also, see the wiki for my write up on processing multiple segments of the same type in a message. Its a Filter example, but a more appropiate use would be in a JAVASCRIPT transformer step. They are basically the same. Essentially, once you get the values using the map location syntax and then the "array" value, you can then use
      var firstInsurance = whatever the mapping is[0];
      var secondInsurance = whatever the mapping is[1];
      localMap.put('Insurance2', secondInsurance);
      Should get you started in the right direction. Just, again, make sure you are using a javascript transformer step and not a mapper step.

      Good luck.
