Hi RapidMiner Gurus!

I have been working with data sets that come with a lot of meta-data. It would be great if there was an operator that assigns multiple special attribute roles equal to their name. ;D

Let's say you have 30 Meta Data columns and would like them to be assigned special roles to be passed through operators but not treated as labels or regular parameters. Today we have "Set Role" which allows setting one by one but it would be great if there was a way to assign by a filtered list or regular expression.

    Hi Gagi,

    you can use Loop Attributes for that. Please have a look at the attached process.

    Best, Marius
