FCALL function numkeys [key [key ...]] [arg [arg ...]]
- Available since:
- Time complexity:
- Depends on the function that is executed.
- ACL categories:
Invoke a function.
Functions are loaded to the server with the
FUNCTION LOAD command.
The first argument is the name of a loaded function.
The second argument is the number of input key name arguments, followed by all the keys accessed by the function. In Lua, these names of input keys are available to the function as a table that is the callback's first argument.
Important: To ensure the correct execution of functions, both in standalone and clustered deployments, all names of keys that a function accesses must be explicitly provided as input key arguments. The function should only access keys whose names are given as input arguments. Functions should never access keys with programmatically-generated names or based on the contents of data structures stored in the database.
Any additional input argument should not represent names of keys. These are regular arguments and are passed in a Lua table as the callback's second argument.
For more information please refer to the Redis Programmability and Introduction to Redis Functions pages.
The following example will create a library named
mylib with a single function,
myfunc, that returns the first argument it gets.
redis> FUNCTION LOAD "#!lua name=mylib \n redis.register_function('myfunc', function(keys, args) return args end)" "mylib" redis> FCALL myfunc 0 hello "hello"
