What does exploding my parsing rule do?

The explode parsing rule button will appear when a parsing rule returns multiple columns of table data:

Most customers don't want the header rows in their table data as this would repeat each time in their output - to combat this after extracting the relevant table data, the explode parsing rule button will allow you to expand that parsing rule into as many rules as there are columns in the rule, which allows you to name the parsing rules (and thus the header columns in your output):

Exploding the rule will create 6 individual rules per the sample above:

Now either your file download or webhook will not include the headers in the parsed data as the name of the parsing rule handles this:
