Logic Apps (Standard) Data Mapper: What is a Function Chain (video)

Function Chain? What is a Function Chain? And how that works inside the Data Mapper?

When we use more than one cascading function to perform a transformation rule, we call it a Function Chain, or a chain of functions that are going to be executed in order. This way, we can apply more complex mapping rules inside the Logic Apps (Standard) Data Mapper. By the way, we had the same concept inside BizTalk Server Maps and Logic App Consumption Map (that is, the BizTalk Server Maps extracted and isolated)
