Can someone help me with a regex that transforms nullQueue before specific date?

I've got data coming in (Dropbox). This is pulled with the TA via REST API. I can't use the ignoreOlderThan in inputs.conf, because it's pulled via script. It wants to pull all our data since 2016 and work up to present day. Really don't care for old stuff like that.

So, I'm doing the Transforms nullQueue and props.conf method. I'm trying to exclude/ignore anything older than 2018-08 and newer. Anyone know the regex to do this?

props.conf
[dfb:rest]
TRANSFORMS-null=setnull

transforms.conf
[setnull]
REGEX =
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = nullQueue

Also, bonus Karma points if you can guess the movie reference. And a possibly awkward hug at .conf next month from me.

If you're timestamp is this "time": "YYYY-MM always, then try something like below:

transforms.conf

[setnull]
REGEX = time\"\:\s\"(201[0-7]|2018\-0[0-7])
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = nullQueue

REGEX = time\"\:\s\"(201[0-7]|2018\-0[0-7])

if you want to have the exclude anything before August 2018.

haha @anzianojackson6761, I was just searching your usernames to see what those were a reference to. Looks like I need to see Space Muntiny 🙂

Nice. You win.

Back to the ticket, I'm wondering if I do something like:
REGEX = 201[0-7].*
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = nullQueue

I'd accomplish the same thing.
