keyvaluedescription
id (required)split
source_id (required)a field id in the current configThe id of the field to split into substrings.
separator (required)stringThe separator to use in the split.
indexintegerThe zero-based index of the substring to return after the split. If unspecified, returns all the split substrings as an array.
