Deduplicate using values from one column

Deduplicate using values from one column

Hello, I'm trying deduplicating my output with Python but I can't understand how to edit the code. I need to deduplicate the table TDD_FT_CUSTOMER_JOURNEY_joined_filtered_joined because - as you can see from the screen below - I have for the same ID (first column) duplicate values. Indeed the column CD_BOOKING also has the same repeating values.

This is the Pyton code that I haven't touched yet.

 

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
import dataiku
import pandas as pd, numpy as np
from dataiku import pandasutils as pdu

# Read recipe inputs
TDD_FT_CUSTOMER_JOURNEY_joined_filtered_joined = dataiku.Dataset("TDD_FT_CUSTOMER_JOURNEY_joined_filtered_joined")
TDD_FT_CUSTOMER_JOURNEY_joined_filtered_joined_df = TDD_FT_CUSTOMER_JOURNEY_joined_filtered_joined.get_dataframe()


# Compute recipe outputs from inputs
# TODO: Replace this part by your actual code that computes the output, as a Pandas dataframe
# NB: DSS also supports other kinds of APIs for reading and writing data. Please see doc.

phone_deduplicated_df = TDD_FT_CUSTOMER_JOURNEY_joined_filtered_joined_df # For this sample code, simply copy input to output


# Write recipe outputs
phone_deduplicated = dataiku.Dataset("phone_deduplicated")
phone_deduplicated.write_with_schema(phone_deduplicated_df)

Hi, 

This is the Pandas library usage question. You would need to use the drop_duplicates method.

In your case it will be something like below:

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
import dataiku
import pandas as pd, numpy as np
from dataiku import pandasutils as pdu

# Read recipe inputs
TDD_FT_CUSTOMER_JOURNEY_joined_filtered_joined = dataiku.Dataset("TDD_FT_CUSTOMER_JOURNEY_joined_filtered_joined")
TDD_FT_CUSTOMER_JOURNEY_joined_filtered_joined_df = TDD_FT_CUSTOMER_JOURNEY_joined_filtered_joined.get_dataframe()


# Compute recipe outputs from inputs
# TODO: Replace this part by your actual code that computes the output, as a Pandas dataframe
# NB: DSS also supports other kinds of APIs for reading and writing data. Please see doc.

phone_deduplicated_df = TDD_FT_CUSTOMER_JOURNEY_joined_filtered_joined_df.drop_duplicates() # For this sample code, simply copy input to output


# Write recipe outputs
phone_deduplicated = dataiku.Dataset("phone_deduplicated")
phone_deduplicated.write_with_schema(phone_deduplicated_df)

 

Best,

Hi VitalyD,

many thanks for your help, the job took 3 minutes to get done and it seemed strange, considering the original table contained 11,872,276 data. In the output there were 740,234 but there were still duplicates, so I exported the file in Excel and did remove duplicates there.

Do you know why Dataiku didn't cancel all duplicates?

Regarding duplicates not removed.

If I remember correctly MS Excel does duplicate removals in a case insensitive way and may also do some white space trimming.

Are the duplicates that remain in the python Pandas method duplicates that have case differences.  Again if I remember correctly pandas is going to look for exact duplicates in a case sensitive way (a != A).  If you want to do duplicate matching in a case insensitive way you may need to find a way to deal with that.

There are many ways you could choose to do this.  For example trimming and setting everything to lower case.  Then do the deduplication.

Here are some more threads on deduplication that may have some further useful insights for you.

Is there any section of the community where I can ask for support about log explanation in case a recipe failed? This is the log.

Hi,

There is no specific section for errors. The Python process ran out of memory from the error stack you provided. So you must ensure it has enough memory to load and process the whole dataset.

If you need more details, we will need to inspect the job diagnosis, so it will be better to handle it through a support ticket https://doc.dataiku.com/dss/latest/troubleshooting/obtaining-support.html.

Regarding using Pandas to duplicate, this is not really about DSS as you are using Python with Pandas, so there is nothing extra that DSS does in the Python code recipes, and the outcome will be the same as running the code outside of DSS (I mean drop_duplicates method). This means that this is most likely source data and how you use the method related, not DSS related.

Alternatively, you can use the Distinct visual recipe instead. 

Best,

Vitaliy
