Question on grouping in custom functions

Hi,

I'm looking to add a custom function.

The function is technically an aggregation and should be grouped by other non aggregate fields in the query.

The function takes the form of

FUNCTION(field1, field2)

The plan is to allow the user to pick the fields. As you can see, field1 and field2 are not aggregated themselves so I was unsure whether I should add this to the definition?

<aggregate>$1</aggregate>
<aggregate>$2</aggregate>

If I do, will this group by the other non aggregate fields in the query as I need?


Thanks

Dean

Hi Dean,

Yes, if you want to aggregate the fields, you should add the relevant tags for that functionality in the definition. They won't appear in the GROUP BY clause, so it should do grouping by the other fields in your query.

Let me know how it goes.

Kind regards,

Chris
