Procedures

md5()

The procedure gets the string representation of every element in the input list, concatenates it into a single string, and returns the md5 hash of that string.

The format of string representations can be seen by checking ToString in C++ API documentation for desired type or Value.

Input:

  • values: List[Any] ➡ THe input list containing elements which can be any of Memgraph's data types.

Output:

  • result: string ➡ The resulting md5 hash returned as string.

Usage:

The hash provided in this documentation will be different from the user's hash for the same input unless the node has the same ID because Node.ToString() uses the node's ID in string formation, so different IDs equal different strings, hence, different hashes:

CREATE (d:Dog);
MATCH (d:Dog)
CALL util_module.md5([d, "string", 50])
YIELD result
RETURN result;

Result:

+-----------------------------------+
| result                            |
+-----------------------------------+
