Hey @djangelic the ‘length’ option is not appearing in the desktop version of n8n. Do you have any other workaround?

Very strange, what version of the desktop version are you using?

How do we achieve this with the new Code node since you have to reference $input instead of items?

Hi @jhambach, assuming you are on the latest version of n8n the Code should work with the exact same snippets:

If you want to use the new syntax, the code on the Count audience & status node could look like so:

const unique_audiences = [ Set($input.all().map(e => e.json.Audience))];
const unique_statuses = [ Set($input.all().map(e => e.json.Status))];

let results = [];

unique_audiences.forEach(audience => {
  let result = {
    json: {
      audience: audience
  unique_statuses.forEach(status => {
    result.json[status] = $input.all().filter(e => e.json.Audience == audience && e.json.Status == status).length;

return results;

Or as a workflow:

Thank you so much for sharing this elegant and concise piece of code ! It would be fantastic if this is embedded in a node ( group by sum, count kind of SQL grouping for JSON objects) as it would make it easy for functional users like myself to adapt using drap and drop. In all cases, thank you again, I am taking this code for now !
