uint() function

uint() converts a value to an unsigned integer type.

uint() behavior depends on the input data type:

Input type Returned value
bool 1 (true) or 0 (false)
duration Number of nanoseconds in the specified duration
float UInteger equivalent of the float value truncated at the decimal
int UInteger equivalent of the integer
string UInteger equivalent of the numeric string
time Equivalent nanosecond epoch timestamp
Function type signature
(v: A) => uint
For more information, see Function type signatures.



(Required) Value to convert.


Convert basic types to unsigned integers

uint(v: "3")

// Returns 3
uint(v: 1m)

// Returns 160000000000
uint(v: 2022-01-01T00:00:00Z)

// Returns 1640995200000000000
uint(v: 10.12)

// Returns 10
uint(v: -100)// Returns 18446744073709551516

Convert all values in a column to unsigned integers

If converting the _value column to uint types, use toUInt(). If converting columns other than _value, use map() to iterate over each row and uint() to covert a column value to a uint type.

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