Concat Post-processing Function

Concat Post-processing function can be used in agents to concatenate fields or custom text into a field. This function can be used in existing field or we can create a new field as well. For example, I have this scraping agent "Concat Function Example (Post-Processing)" in my account with 5 fields (Url, Name, Brand, Color, Price) and I want to make a new field Title by combining these fields in same row and also some custom text in middle. So, I can use the Concat Post-processing to do this automatically, for each row in my scraping agent.

  5. Then Save the function and the scraping agent configuration

  6. And finally, re-run you agent to apply the function in your result.
