Fail on condition directive

The FAIL directive will fail processing of data pipeline when condition is evaluated to true.


fail exp:{<condition>}

The <condition> is a JEXL expression specifying the condition that governs if the record should be sent to the error collector.

Usage Notes

The most common use of the FAIL directive is to fail further processing of the pipeline when the condition is met.


Assume a record that has these three fields:

  • Error Name

  • Error Count

These directives will implement these rules; any records that match any of these conditions will terminate further processing of the pipeline.

fail ErrorCount > 1
