How do I add Data Format to elements with an identifier instance (JSON)?

Dear experts,


I am looking to change the Data Format Options of some fields that are 'obtained' through creating an identifier instance with qualifiers.

It seems all of them depend on the original array element - however, some fields contain currency or date values. It would be very helpful if I could set the Data Format Option to number and date/time for these fields, to improve later mapping.

Is there any way to set this, or is this impossible with Identifier Instances to begin with?


I've managed to work around the issue by setting them all as Character and using String Functions in my map to generate the correct output. I feel like there's probably an easier way, though. Any thoughts on this are appreciated!
