Boolean functions


  • parameters:
    • negand: boolean
  • result: boolean
// false

is defined()#

Checks if a given value is defined or not. A value is defined if it exists, and it is an instance of one of the FEEL data types including null.

The function can be used to check if a variable, or a context entry (e.g. a property of a variable) exists. It allows differentiating between a variable that is null and a value that doesn't exist.
