The parse_ion processor parses Amazon Ion data.


You can configure the parse_ion processor with the following options.

Option Required Type Description
source No String The field in the event that is parsed. Default value is message.
destination No String The destination field of the parsed JSON. Defaults to the root of the event. Cannot be "", /, or any white-space-only string because these are not valid event fields.
pointer No String A JSON pointer to the field to be parsed. There is no pointer by default, meaning that the entire source is parsed. The pointer can access JSON array indexes as well. If the JSON pointer is invalid, then the entire source data is parsed into the outgoing event. If the key that is pointed to already exists in the event and the destination is the root, then the pointer uses the entire path of the key.
tags_on_failure No String A list of strings that specify the tags to be set in the event that the processors fails or an unknown exception occurs while parsing.


The following examples show how to use the parse_ion processor in your pipeline.

Example: Minimum configuration

The following example shows the minimum configuration for the parse_ion processor:

    - parse_json:
        source: "my_ion"
    - stdout:

When the input event contains the following data:

{"my_ion": "{ion_value1: \"hello\", ion_value2: \"world\"}"}

The processor parses the event into the following output:

{"ion_value1": "hello", "ion_value2" : "world"}
