Function: Find Min/Max Value


Finds Minimum or Maximum Value in Row


This function allows you to find the minimum or maximum value in all events for the specified field. The function outputs a search result in the format [ { : , type: <'min'/'max'> } ]. This function does not pass the original event to the output, so it is convenient to place it in a separate processing chain.
In the parameters, you need to specify which field to search for, and the type of search-the minimum or maximum value.

Function Schema


We will submit a list of students with their age as input to the function. We need to find the age of the oldest student. To do this, set Field Name = 'age' and Search Type = 'maximum' in the function parameters. The result will be an event containing the 'age' field, the maximum value for all events, and the search type.
