PySpark RDD's keys(~) method returns the keys of a pair RDD that contains tuples of length two.

Parameters

This method does not take in any parameters.

Return Value

A PySpark RDD (pyspark.rdd.PipelinedRDD).

Examples

Consider the following PySpark pair RDD:

# Create a RDD using the parallelize method
rdd = sc.parallelize([("a",3),("a",2),("b",5),("c",1)])
rdd.collect()
[('a', 3), ('a', 2), ('b', 5), ('c', 1)]

Getting the keys of a pair RDD in PySpark

To get the keys of the pair RDD as a list of strings:

rdd.keys().collect()
['a', 'a', 'b', 'c']

Note that if the RDD is not a pair RDD, then the values are returned:

rdd = sc.parallelize(["a","a","b","c"])
rdd.collect()
['a', 'a', 'b', 'c']
