How to Use Aggregate Functions

When analyzing data, you may need to know the average salary of all employees, the quantity of goods in stock, the number of individual items in stock, the maximum or minimum cost, and so on. These tasks are easily handled with aggregate functions. Aggregate functions perform calculations using the values in a column in order to obtain a single resulting value.

Backendless supports several aggregate functions, such as:

  • AVERAGE – to calculate the average
  • COUNT – to calculate the number of rows in the query
  • SUM – to calculate the sum of values
  • MIN – to calculate the smallest value
  • MAX – to calculate the largest value

Let’s take a closer look at how to work with aggregate functions using BackendlessIn this article we will look at using aggregate functions with Backendless REST API, but we also show how to work with aggregate functions using Backendless SDK for iOS API, Backendless SDK for Android/Java API, Backendless SDK for .NET API, and Backendless SDK for JavaScript.
