The NARY_MIN function returns the minimum value of the input arguments.

NARY_MIN is similar to MIN, except it allows you to compare multiple values.

In this article:


NARY_MIN(X, Y, [,Z]*)

Output type

By default, NARY_MIN returns an unaggregated dimension.


Example 1

This example shows how you can mix fields, calculations, and literals in an NARY function:


Example 2

Suppose you want to determine the minimum sales for your 3 sales regions by date and your data looks like this:

Date Region 1 Sales Region 2 Sales Region 3 Sales
Apr 17, 2018 100 200 150
Apr 18, 2018 75 130 150
Apr 19, 2018 225 185 230

You could use the NARY_MIN function to determine the minimum sales for a given date:

NARY_MIN(Region 1 Sales, Region 2 Sales,Region 3 Sales,)

Date NARY_MIN calculated field
Apr 17, 2018 100
Apr 18, 2018 75
Apr 19, 2018 185


NARY_MIN requires at least 2 arguments.

At least one argument must be a field or an expression containing a field.

All arguments must be of the same semantic type, i.e., all numbers. For example you can't perform an NARY function on a number, a text field, and a date.
