3. Example and how to use it


In this example, a field contains a value in the format of:

 'attributename/attributeValue1|attributename/attributeValue2'. 

By separating each pair using the '|' symbol and further dividing the pairs with the '/' symbol, we can create two pairs. Each pair will have the attribute name and its corresponding attribute value extracted and assigned to separate fields.


The "Extracted values" field has been updated to reflect the following format. 

These extracted values can now be utilized without any restrictions to map them to the desired fields in the mapping section.
