Processors

A processor stage represents a type of data processing that you want to perform. You can use as many processors in a pipeline as you need.

The Data Collector provides the following processors:
  • Base64 Field Decoder - Decodes Base64 encoded data to binary data.
  • Base64 Field Encoder - Encodes binary data using Base64.
  • Expression Evaluator - Performs calculations on data. Can also add or modify record header attributes.
  • Field Flattener - Flattens nested fields.
  • Field Hasher - Uses an algorithm to encode sensitive data.
  • Field Masker - Masks sensitive string data.
  • Field Merger - Merges fields in complex lists or maps.
  • Field Order - Orders fields in a map or list-map root field type and outputs the fields into a list-map or list root field type.
  • Field Pivoter - Pivots data in a list, map, or list-map field and creates a record for each item in the field.
  • Field Remover - Removes fields from a record.
  • Field Renamer - Renames fields in a record.
  • Field Splitter - Splits the string values in a field into different fields.
  • Field Type Converter - Converts the data types of fields.
  • Field Zip - Merges list data from two fields.
  • Geo IP- Returns geolocation and IP intelligence information for a specified IP address.
  • Groovy Evaluator - Processes records based on custom Groovy code.
  • HBase Lookup - Performs key-value lookups in HBase to enrich records with data.
  • Hive Metadata - Generates Hive metadata and write information for HDFS.
  • HTTP Client - The HTTP Client processor sends requests to an HTTP resource URL and writes the results to a field.
  • JavaScript Evaluator - Processes records based on custom JavaScript code.
  • JDBC Lookup - Performs lookups in a database table through a JDBC connection.
  • JDBC Tee - Writes data to a database table through a JDBC connection, and enriches records with data from generated database columns.
  • JSON Parser - Parses a JSON object embedded in a string field.
  • Jython Evaluator - Processes records based on custom Jython code.
  • Log Parser - Parses log data in a field based on the specified log format.
  • Record Deduplicator - Removes duplicate records.
  • Redis Lookup - Performs key-value lookups in Redis to enrich records with data.
  • Salesforce Lookup - Performs lookups in Salesforce to enrich records with data.
  • Spark Evaluator - Processes data based on a custom Spark application.
  • Static Lookup - Performs key-value lookups in local memory.
  • Stream Selector - Routes data to different streams based on conditions.
  • Value Replacer - Replaces existing nulls or specified values with constants or nulls.
  • XML Flattener - Flattens XML data in a string field.
  • XML Parser - Parses XML data in a string field.
To help create or test pipelines, you can use the following development processors:
  • Dev Identity

  • Dev Random Error

  • Dev Record Creator
