Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to parse a Json that contains a value that is a CSV and split every line to send multiple POST with a http destination (REST API resource). The pipeline now is: ORIGIN: http server in Streamset appliance that receive a Json with a a base64 value in it (it works) PROCESSOR: decode base64 field (it works)

now I have this result in json (written in fs local for debug purposes)

  "decoded_field":"SERIAL NUMBER,MAC ADDRESS,FORM FACTOR,TIMECREATE,NUMBER ITEM\r\n17006492100005,DC:AB:B2:6A:34:A4,1,28/11/2017 22:25:02,43039167\r\n17006492100006,F5:57:C8:D1:62:50,1,28/11/2017 22:16:18,43039167\r\n17006492100007,FF:18:C8:DE:92:4A,1,28/11/2017 \r\n"

I would like to split "decoded_field" and obtain multiple json and send them via http client destination

    "id": "001",
    DPIYesOrNo: 1,
    typeDPI: "100",
    data: [
            SERIAL NUMBER: "xxxxxx",
            NAME: "Imported",
            macAddress: "MAC ADDRESS",

You can use a javascript evaluator to split your csv field into a list field then use a field pivoter on the list field to create separate records. Quick and dirty the JS looks like this (you may need to adjust for your field names, this is what I got when I used your json example as a one line text file origin and ran it through a json parser making it's root /json):

records[i].value['decoded_field_list'] = records[i].value['json'][0]['decoded_field'].split('\r\n')

This will give you an extra first record that is your headers so you'll probably want to remove the first element of the list.

Thanks mstang! It works like a charm!
