Unescape Post-processing Function

Unescape Post-processing function can be used to convert escaped text in ‘JSON’ to clean the string in our extracted field result. For example, I have this scraping agent “Unescape Function Example(Post-Processing)” with four fields (Name, Image, Description, Sku) in my account and I want to convert escaped text (\/\/) in unescaped text (//) from Image field. So, we can use the Unescape Post-processing function to convert escaped text in ‘JSON’ to clean the escaped text.
