/filter/bylist

URL: http://GPUDB_IP_ADDRESS:GPUDB_PORT/filter/bylist

Calculates which records from a table have values in the given list for the corresponding column. The operation is synchronous, meaning that a response will not be returned until all the objects are fully available. The response payload provides the count of the resulting set. A new resultant set (view) which satisfies the input filter specification is also created if a input parameter view_name is passed in as part of the request.

For example, if a type definition has the columns 'x' and 'y', then a filter by list query with the column map {"x":["10.1", "2.3"], "y":["0.0", "-31.5", "42.0"]} will return the count of all data points whose x and y values match both in the respective x- and y-lists, e.g., "x = 10.1 and y = 0.0", "x = 2.3 and y = -31.5", etc. However, a record with "x = 10.1 and y = -31.5" or "x = 2.3 and y = 0.0" would not be returned because the values in the given lists do not correspond.

Supported Parameters (keys)Parameter Description
collection_name[DEPRECATED--please specify the containing schema for the view as part of input parameter view_name and use /create/schema to create the schema if non-existent] Name of a schema for the newly created view. If the schema provided is non-existent, it will be automatically created.
