Overlapping Parsers

Jump to solution

Hey guys, I was wondering, if I have two parsers that overlap in the data that they can parse - which one get priority and why?

For an example, lets say I have a built in checkpoint parser that covers all the event logs coming in and I want to create a custom parser that will cover all the event logs with Application = Anti Spam, how do I get my custom parser to get priority over the built in parser who is much wider then it is?

Use the Order ASP rule to prioritize which parser to use.

As Sssyyy stated, overlapping parsers will trigger based on the rule Order. Content strings are used first, but if two parsers share content strings and overlap on parsing, the rule order will kick in.

You can also just disable any parsers that you don't want active on the data source in the policy editor.
