class nvtabular.ops.Rename(f=None, postfix=None, name=None)[source]

Bases: nvtabular.ops.operator.Operator

This operation renames columns by one of several methods:

  • using a user defined lambda function to transform column names

  • appending a postfix string to every column name

  • renaming a single column to a single fixed string

Example usage:

# Rename columns after LogOp
cont_features = cont_names >> nvt.ops.LogOp() >> Rename(postfix='_log')
processor = nvt.Workflow(cont_features)
  • f (callable, optional) – Function that takes a column name and returns a new column name

  • postfix (str, optional) – If set each column name in the output will have this string appended to it

  • name (str, optional) – If set, a single input column will be renamed to this string

transform(col_selector: merlin.dag.selector.ColumnSelector, df: pandas.core.frame.DataFrame)pandas.core.frame.DataFrame[source]

Transform the dataframe by applying this operator to the set of input columns

  • columns (list of str or list of list of str) – The columns to apply this operator to

  • df (Dataframe) – A pandas or cudf dataframe that this operator will work on


Returns a transformed dataframe for this operator
