The Distinct function returns a SetRef object that represents all of the unique elements in the provided SetRef.

Parameters

Argument Type Definition and Requirements

set

SetRef

The SetRef to evaluate for distinct elements.

Returns

A SetRef for the distinct operation.

Examples

The query below show all of the elements in the "elements_of_spells" index. The index contains duplicate values for "fire" and "water".

      Paginate(Match(Index(Value("elements_of_spells"))))
    ).get());
result, _ := client.Query(f.Paginate(f.Match(f.Index("elements_of_spells"))))

When the set operator Distinct is applied to this query, the duplicate values, "fire" and "water" are eliminated.

The events view of a set of values include the resources themselves, the distinct function returns the same set.
