ARRAYCROSS Function
Generates a nested array containing the crossproduct of all elements in two or more arrays.
Input arrays can be referenced as column names or array literals.
If Array1 has M elements and Array2 has N elements, the generated array has M X N elements.
Note
Be careful applying this function across columns of large arrays. A limit is automatically applied on large arrays to prevent overloading the browser. Avoid apply the ARRAYCROSS
transform to very wide columns.
Wrangle vs. SQL: This function is part of Wrangle, a proprietary data transformation language. Wrangle is not SQL. For more information, see Wrangle Language.
Basic Usage
Array literal reference example:
arraycross[["A","B"],["1","2","3"]])
Output: Returns a single array:
[["A","1"],["A","2"],["A","3"],["B","1"],["B","2"],["B","3"]]
Column reference example:
arraycross(array1,array2,array3)
Output: Returns an array containing a single array listing all combinations of elements between array1
, array2
, and array3
.

Functions:
Item  Description 

ARRAYCONCAT Function  Combines the elements of one array with another, listing all elements of the first array before listing all elements of the second array. 
ARRAYINTERSECT Function  Generates an array containing all elements that appear in multiple input arrays, referenced as column names or array literals. 
ARRAYCROSS Function  Generates a nested array containing the crossproduct of all elements in two or more arrays. 
ARRAYUNIQUE Function  Generates an array of all unique elements among one or more arrays.

Item  ArrayA  ArrayB 

Item1  ["A","B","C"]  ["1","2","3"] 
Item2  ["A","B"]  ["A","B","C"] 
Item3  ["D","E","F"]  ["4","5","6"] 
Transformation:
You can apply the following transforms in the following order. Note that the column names must be different from the transform name, which is a reserved word.

For display purposes, the results table has been broken down into three separate sets of columns.
Column set 1:
Item  ArrayA  ArrayB  concat2  intersection2 

Item1 
 ["1","2","3"]  ["A","B","C","1","2","3"] 

Item2  ["A","B"]  ["A","B","C"]  ["A","B","A","B","C"]  ["A","B"] 
Item3  ["D","E","F"]  ["4","5","6"]  ["D","E","F","4","5","6"]  [ ] 
Column set 2:
Item  cross2 

Item1  [["A","1"],["A","2"],["A","3"],["B","1"],["B","2"],["B","3"],["C","1"],["C","2"],["C","3"]] 
Item2  [["A","A"],["A","B"],["A","C"],["B","A"],["B","B"],["B","C"]] 
Item3  [["D","4"],["D","5"],["D","6"],["E","4"],["E","5"],["E","6"], ["F","4"],["F","5"],["F","6"]] 
Column set 3:
