Questions about inclusion and exclusion in relation to field extraction?

New Member


I have two questions that are quite confusing to me, can you please explain this to me in layman terms?

  1. Field inclusion happens before field extraction and can improve performance.
  2. Field exclusion happens after field extraction, only affecting displayed results.
