Assign a Opal table to a data.frame identified by a R symbol in the current R session.

opal.assign.table(
  opal,
  symbol,
  value,
  variables = NULL,
  missings = FALSE,
  identifiers = NULL,
  id.name = NULL,
  updated.name = NULL,
  class = "data.frame",
  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 fully qualified name of a variable or a table in Opal.

missings

If TRUE, missing values will be pushed from Opal to R, default is FALSE.

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

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

class

The data frame class into which the table is written: can 'data.frame' (default) or 'tibble' (from Opal 2.6 to 2.13) or 'tibble.with.factors' (from Opal 2.14).
