I'd suggest sending them to nullQueue at index time. The configuration to do this may look something like the below.


TRANSFORMS-removeHeaders = removeHeaders


REGEX = ^[^0-9]
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = nullQueue

Specifically this will drop any line that does not start with a number.

For general direction, consider reading the Route and filter data documentation.
