Embedded scripting functions

SurrealDB allows for advanced functions with complicated logic, by allowing embedded functions to be written in JavaScript. These functions support the ES2023 JavaScript specification.

Simple function‚Äč

Embedded JavaScript functions within SurrealDB support all functionality in the ES2023 specification including async / await functions, and generator functions. Any value from SurrealDB is converted into a JavaScript type automatically, and the return value from the JavaScript function is converted to a SurrealDB value.

CREATE person SET scores = function() {
return [1,2,3].map(v => v * 10);
