Parsing basics

Parsing is a feature that allows you to extract information from incoming messages and incoming API calls.

For example, you can extract:

  • a mobile telephone number from an incoming email
  • an email address from a Tweet
  • a decimal number from an SMS

For this to work successfully you need to use the trigger matchphrase to provide Conducttr with

  • a “parsing template” – this tells Conducttr what information it should be looking for
  • a Variable or Attribute to store the extracted information.

In Conducttr, a Variable is a temporary place to store information and only survives for one processing cycle (i.e. for actions that happen with the same Process ID).
