postgres add object to jsonb array from the same column

We want to create a new column where it's a combination for several column as a jsonb object.

	ADD new_arrays_col jsonb DEFAULT '[]';

UPDATE items i1
SET new_arrays_col = new_arrays_col || JSON_BUILD_OBJECT(
		'col1', col1,
		'col1', col2

the new_arrays || ... is kind of like appending to exisitng array with an object. JSON_BUILD_OBJECT is a postgres function to create a JSON object from the parameters
