Parse a URL

Use the Parse URL operation to break down a URL to the component level.

Procedure

  1. On the Identification or Connectivity Sections form, select Parse URL from the Operation list.
  2. Fill in the fields, as appropriate.
    Field Description
    Source Specify the URL:
    • Enter a value that can change, a variable. Type the dollar character ($) and the first letters of the variable name. For example, $ldap_url.
    • Specify complex (concatenated) values in fields. Enter a value, then add a plus sign (+), and then enter another value. For example, $install_directory+"conf/httpd.conf".
    • Enter constant values, a string. For example, "/opt/ibm/mqsi/7.0/bin/".
    • Enter a value from a tabular variable: from a specific field or a specific column in a table sequentially, starting from the first row. For more information, see Useful shortcuts in Pattern Designer.
    Important: Avoid entering a specific path to a location or file because it can be different on different operating systems. It is recommended to use variables for paths.
    Target Specify the table into which the results variables, complex values or strings as described above.
    If not found Select this check box to terminate discovery if no results are found.
