int() function

int() converts a value to an integer type.

int() behavior depends on the input data type:

Input typeReturned value
stringInteger equivalent of the numeric string
bool1 (true) or 0 (false)
durationNumber of nanoseconds in the specified duration
timeEquivalent nanosecond epoch timestamp
floatValue truncated at the decimal
uintInteger equivalent of the unsigned integer
Function type signature
(v: A) => int
For more information, see Function type signatures.



(Required) Value to convert.


Convert basic types to integers

int(v: 10.12)

// Returns 10
int(v: "3")

// Returns 3
int(v: true)

// Returns 1
int(v: 1m)

// Returns 160000000000
int(v: 2022-01-01T00:00:00Z)// Returns 1640995200000000000

Convert all values in a column to integers

If converting the _value column to integer types, use toInt(). If converting columns other than _value, use map() to iterate over each row and int() to covert a column value to a integer type.

    |> map(fn: (r) => ({r with exampleCol: int(v: r.exampleCol)}))
