dictGetUInt8, dictGetUInt16, dictGetUInt32, dictGetUInt64

dictGetInt8, dictGetInt16, dictGetInt32, dictGetInt64

dictGetFloat32, dictGetFloat64

dictGetDate, dictGetDateTime

dictGetUUID

dictGetString

dictGetT('dict_name', 'attr_name', id)

  • Get the value of the attr_name attribute from the dict_name dictionary using the 'id' key.dict_name and attr_name are constant strings.idmust be UInt64. If there is no id key in the dictionary, it returns the default value specified in the dictionary description.

dictGetTOrDefault

dictGetT('dict_name', 'attr_name', id, default)

The same as the dictGetT functions, but the default value is taken from the function's last argument.

dictIsIn

dictIsIn ('dict_name', child_id, ancestor_id)

  • For the 'dict_name' hierarchical dictionary, finds out whether the 'child_id' key is located inside 'ancestor_id' (or matches 'ancestor_id'). Returns UInt8.

dictGetHierarchy

dictGetHierarchy('dict_name', id)

  • For the 'dict_name' hierarchical dictionary, returns an array of dictionary keys starting from 'id' and continuing along the chain of parent elements. Returns Array(UInt64).

dictHas

dictHas('dict_name', id)

  • Check whether the dictionary has the key. Returns a UInt8 value equal to 0 if there is no key and 1 if there is a key.
