How to create a parser

The JS Parsers object can be used in user customizable scripts within CYBERQUEST Data Transformation Service (DTS) and in Alerts.

DTS is a parsing service based on a script (JavaScript) that has a wide range of functions. Its primary role is performing additional transformations on data extracted from collected events.
