Dataset functions

There are two types of dataset functions. Generating dataset functions create events to form a dataset. Sink dataset functions consume events from a dataset.

Some dataset functions can be used with any generating command. Other dataset functions are designed to be used only with a specific command. The following table describes the SPL2 dataset functions:

Dataset function Function type Description
actions sink Use this function to interact with the Actions service.

This function is used only with the into command. See into command usage in the SPL2 Search Reference.

indexes generating Use this function to map to the indexes that you have permission to access.

This function is used with any generating command, such as the from, join, and union commands.

repeat generating Use this function to create events in a temporary dataset. The SPL2 repeat() dataset function is similar to the makeresults command in SPL.

This function is used with any generating command, such as the from, join, and union commands.
