Hello, there is someway to pass a null value? I tried with the '~' character but it's not working
Tried with this transformation /*
/^(null)$/ but it's not working neither. It is because it's inside a TableNode?

explain your problem. Your message make no sense without context.

Imagine this Scenario:
Scenario: Save all products from file
Given the following products:
| code | name |
| 1 | null |
Well, null is the string 'null', not a real null value.
Can I make it null somehow?
I mean, when you get the data with the DableNode

Simply by not setting it in your TableNode I guess

In that case an empty string is passed
(sorry for my english if is wrong)

You're using FriendlyContext ?
(weird that you give an empty string, if it's for testing your object it's not the job of behat)

Just the default implements SnippetAcceptingContext
This is not the real Scenario, it is just an example

So you can easily use
$name = $name !== 'null' ?: null;

you can use a table transform to do what you want

e.g. in your example you'd use
that function would receive the TableNode and return... something. I guess an array?
Then your step definition would type hint array instead of TableNode and get the processed array
any other steps that use that same table format
Params from Gherkin are always strings

There is a PR for
row:code,name that avoids you having to write the loop but it's not been merged yet, might be in 3.1
