Assign a Opal table, or a R expression or a R object to a R symbol in the current R session.

opal.assign(
  opal,
  symbol,
  value,
  variables = NULL,
  missings = FALSE,
  identifiers = NULL,
  id.name = NULL,
  updated.name = NULL,
  async = FALSE
)

Arguments

opal

Opal object or list of opal objects.

symbol

Name of the R symbol.

value

The value to assign evaluated in the following order: a R expression, a function, a fully qualified name of a variable or a table in Opal or any other R object (data.frame, vector).

variables

List of variable names or Javascript expression that selects the variables of a table (ignored if value does not refere to a table). See javascript documentation: http://wiki.obiba.org/display/OPALDOC/Variable+Methods

missings

If TRUE, missing values will be pushed from Opal to R, default is FALSE. Ignored if value is an R expression.

identifiers

Name of the identifiers mapping to use when assigning entities to R (from Opal 2.0).

id.name

Add a vector with the given name representing the entity identifiers (from Opal 2.6). Default is NULL.

updated.name

Add a vector with the given name representing the creation and last update timestamps (from Opal 2.6). Default is NULL.
