Function

Function( name, [database] )
Function( name, [database] )
Function( name, [database] )
Function( name, [database] )
function( name, [database] )
Function( name, [database] )

Description

The Function function returns a Reference for the specified function name in the specified child database. If a child database is not specified, the returned function reference belongs to the current database.

When a child database is specified, an admin key must be used to call Function (server or client keys, or ABAC tokens, cannot be used to access a child database).

Parameters

Argument Type Definition and Requirements

name

The name of a function.

database

Optional - A reference to a child database. If not specified, the current database is used.

Returns

A reference to a function with the specified name, in the specified child database (or the current database if database is not specified).

Examples

The following query gets a reference to the function named increment:

Value result = await client.Query(
  Function("increment")
);

IResult<Value> data = result.To<Value>();
data.Match(
  Success: value => Console.WriteLine($"{value}"),
  Failure: error => Console.WriteLine($"Query failed:\n{error}")
);
RefV(id = "increment", collection = RefV(id = "functions"))

System.out.println(
    client.query(
        Function("increment")
    ).get());
ref(id = "increment", collection = ref(id = "functions"))
client.query(
  q.Function('increment')
)

Function("increment")
print(client.query(
  q.function("increment")
))
Ref(id=increment, collection=Ref(id=functions))
println(Await.result(
  client.query(
    Function("increment")
  ),
  5.seconds
))
ref(id = "increment", collection = ref(id = "functions"))

The following query demonstrates how to retrieve the function document by its reference:

Value result = await client.Query(
  Get(Function("increment"))
);

IResult<Value> data = result.To<Value>();
data.Match(
  Success: value => Console.WriteLine($"{value}"),
  Failure: error => Console.WriteLine($"Query failed:\n{error}")
);
