extract regex from record field in UpdateRecord

New Contributor

I need to split out a URL value in a record into different parts in an UpdateRecord processor.
Given there is no URL parsing function in EL, I was hoping to use a regex to extract matching groups into new record paths.

As there are many records in a flowfile, ExtractText into attributes won't work, can anyone think of a good way to preform regex group extracts in a record processor, or am I just missing something?

Re: extract regex from record field in UpdateRecord

@scotth1 You should be able to use QueryRecord processor with some advanced sql to extract what you need from any values in the underlying data result.

 

Here is a great article about QueryRecord:
