UnresolvedOrdinal Unevaluable Leaf Expression

UnresolvedOrdinal is a <> that represents a single integer literal in <> logical operators (in <> ordering expressions) and in <> logical operators (in <>) in a logical plan.

UnresolvedOrdinal is <> when SubstituteUnresolvedOrdinals logical resolution rule is executed.

[source, scala]

// Note "order by 1" clause val sqlText = "select id from VALUES 1, 2, 3 t1(id) order by 1" val logicalPlan = spark.sql(sqlText).queryExecution.logical scala> println(logicalPlan.numberedTreeString) 00 'Sort [1 ASC NULLS FIRST], true 01 +- 'Project ['id] 02 +- 'SubqueryAlias t1 03 +- 'UnresolvedInlineTable [id], [List(1), List(2), List(3)]

import org.apache.spark.sql.catalyst.analysis.SubstituteUnresolvedOrdinals val rule = new SubstituteUnresolvedOrdinals(spark.sessionState.conf)

val logicalPlanWithUnresolvedOrdinals = rule.apply(logicalPlan) scala> println(logicalPlanWithUnresolvedOrdinals.numberedTreeString) 00 'Sort [unresolvedordinal(1) ASC NULLS FIRST], true 01 +- 'Project ['id] 02 +- 'SubqueryAlias t1 03 +- 'UnresolvedInlineTable [id], [List(1), List(2), List(3)]

import org.apache.spark.sql.catalyst.plans.logical.Sort val sortOp = logicalPlanWithUnresolvedOrdinals.collect { case s: Sort => s }.head val sortOrder = sortOp.order.head

[[creating-instance]] [[ordinal]] UnresolvedOrdinal takes a single ordinal integer when created.

UnresolvedOrdinal is an unevaluable expression.

[[resolved]] UnresolvedOrdinal can never be <> (and is replaced at <>).

[[analysis-phase]] NOTE: UnresolvedOrdinal is resolved when ResolveOrdinalInOrderByAndGroupBy logical resolution rule is executed.

[[NonSQLExpression]] UnresolvedOrdinal has <>.

NOTE: UnresolvedOrdinal in GROUP BY ordinal position is not allowed for a select list with a star (*).
