Literals - AWS IoT SiteWise


You can define number and string literals in formula expressions.

  • Numbers

    Use numbers and scientific notation to define integers and doubles. You can use E notation to express numbers with scientific notation.

    Examples: 1, 2.0, .9, -23.1, 7.89e3, 3.4E-5

  • Strings

    Use the ' (quote) and " (double quote) characters to define strings. The quote type for the start and end must match. To escape a quote that matches the one that you use to declare a string, include that quote character twice. This is the only escape character in AWS IoT SiteWise strings.

    Examples: 'active', "inactive", '{"temp": 52}', "{""temp"": ""high""}"
