intersect_arrays#

Description#

Returns an array containing the matching elements inside the two input arrays.

The multiplicity of a value in the output array will be the minimum multiplicity of that value in the two input arrays. The function is NULL-safe, meaning it treats NULLS as known values for comparing equality: if both input arrays contain a NULL value, then the resulting output array will also contain a NULL.

array

Domain#

This is a scalar function (calculates a single output value for a single input row.)
