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 convert a column value to a integer type.

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

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
