Extract arrayedit

This functionality is in technical preview and may be changed or removed in a future release. Elastic will apply best effort to fix any issues, but features in technical preview are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features.

The extract_array processor populates fields with values read from an array field. The following example will populate source.ip with the first element of the my_array field, destination.ip with the second element, and network.transport with the third.

  - extract_array:
      field: my_array
        source.ip: 0
        destination.ip: 1
        network.transport: 2

The following settings are supported:

The array field whose elements are to be extracted.
Maps each field name to an array index. Use 0 for the first element in the array. Multiple fields can be mapped to the same array element.
(Optional) Whether to ignore events where the array field is missing. The default is false, which will fail processing of an event if the specified field does not exist. Set it to true to ignore this condition.
Whether the target fields specified in the mapping are overwritten if they already exist. The default is false, which will fail processing if a target field already exists.
(Optional) If set to true and an error happens, changes to the event are reverted, and the original event is returned. If set to false, processing continues despite errors. Default is true.
(Optional) Whether empty values are extracted from the array. If set to true, instead of the target field being set to an empty value, it is left unset. The empty string (""), an empty array ([]) or an empty object ({}) are considered empty values. Default is false.
