Creates a placeholder for a tf.RaggedTensor that will always be fed.

    dtype, ragged_rank, value_shape=None, name=None

Important: This ragged tensor will produce an error if evaluated. Its value must be fed using the feed_dict optional argument to, Tensor.eval(), or

@compatibility{eager} Placeholders are not compatible with eager execution.


  • dtype: The data type for the RaggedTensor.
  • ragged_rank: The ragged rank for the RaggedTensor
  • value_shape: The shape for individual flat values in the RaggedTensor.
  • name: A name for the operation (optional).


A RaggedTensor that may be used as a handle for feeding a value, but not evaluated directly.


  • RuntimeError: if eager execution is enabled
