We're excited to announce the new parse operator in APL, a powerful tool for extracting structured data from string fields. This operator allows you to define parsing patterns using string constants, regular expressions, or a combination of both, and then assign the extracted values to new fields in the result set.

  • Data extraction: Extract structured data from unstructured or semi-structured string fields, enabling you to transform raw data into a more usable format.
  • Flexibility: Adapt to different data formats and requirements by supporting different parsing modes (simple, relaxed, regex) and providing various options to define parsing patterns.
  • Performance: Optimize query performance by extracting only the necessary information from string fields, reducing the amount of data processed and enabling more efficient filtering and aggregation.
