Troubleshooting filtering in Xano for a specific store with cuisines

During the meeting, the State Changers discussed an issue with filtering stores in a coding project. They were trying to remove a specific store from a list based on certain criteria, but were encountering difficulties. They discussed different approaches, such as using a remove function and a filter function.

At first, they tried using the remove function, but it wasn't working as expected. They then explored using the filter function, where they would create a filter that would exclude the store they wanted to remove. They experimented with different code variations and tested it, but it still didn't produce the desired result. They also tried using the underscore ID path instead of the store itself to compare values, but that didn't work either. They continued troubleshooting and discussing possible solutions, including using the contains function and finding all elements that didn't match the criteria. Ultimately, they discovered that the issue was due to the way they were handling the data. They were not properly updating the stores variable and were losing its integrity. To solve the problem, they created a separate variable called "output" and copied the desired output into it. This prevented any loss of data during the iteration process. By the end of the meeting, they were able to successfully filter the stores and obtain the desired result.
