yield() function

The yield() function indicates the input tables received should be delivered as a result of the query. Yield outputs the input stream unmodified. A query may have multiple results, each identified by the name provided to the yield() function.

yield(name: "custom-name")

yield() is implicit for queries that do only one thing and are only needed when using multiple sources in a query. With multiple sources, yield() is required to specify what is returned, and what name to give it.

Parameters

name

A unique name for the yielded results. Default is "_results".

tables

Input data. Default is piped-forward data (<-).

Examples

from(bucket: "example-bucket")
    |> range(start: -5m)
    |> yield(name: "result-name")
