view 

Turns a subquery into a table. The function implements views (see CREATE VIEW). The resulting table doesn't store data, but only stores the specified SELECT query. When reading from the table, ClickHouse executes the query and deletes all unnecessary columns from the result.

Syntax

view(subquery)

Parameters

  • subquerySELECT query.

Returned value

  • A table.

Example

Input table:

┌─id─┬─name─────┬─days─┐
│  1 │ January  │   31 │
│  2 │ February │   29 │
│  3 │ March    │   31 │
│  4 │ April    │   30 │
└────┴──────────┴──────┘

Query:

SELECT * FROM view(SELECT name FROM months)

Result:

┌─name─────┐
│ January  │
│ February │
│ March    │
│ April    │
└──────────┘

You can use the view function as a parameter of the remote and cluster table functions:

SELECT * FROM remote(`127.0.0.1`, view(SELECT a, b, c FROM table_name))
SELECT * FROM cluster(`cluster_name`, view(SELECT a, b, c FROM table_name))
