yield() function

yield() delivers input data as a result of the query.

A query may have multiple yields, each identified by unique name specified in the name parameter.

Note: yield() is implicit for queries that output a single stream of tables and is only necessary when yielding multiple results from a query.

Function type signature
(<-tables: stream[A], ?name: string) => stream[A] where A: Record

For more information, see Function type signatures.

Parameters

name

Unique name for the yielded results. Default is _results.

tables

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

Examples

Yield multiple results from a query

import "sampledata"

sampledata.int()
    |> yield(name: "unmodified")
    |> map(fn: (r) => ({r with _value: r._value * r._value}))
    |> yield(name: "squared")

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.
