I want to filter out the rows have null values in the field of "friend_id".

scala> val aaa = test.filter("friend_id is null")

scala> aaa.count
I got :res52: Long = 0 which is obvious not right. What is the right way to get it?

To create the filter condition that you are looking for, follow the example below:

val df = spark.createDataFrame(Seq(

  (0, "a1", "b1", "c1", "d1"),

  (1, "a2", "b2", "c2", "d2"),

  (2, "a3", "b3", null, "d3"),

  (3, "a4", null, "c4", "d4"),

  (4, null, "b5", "c5", "d5")

)).toDF("id", "col1", "col2", "col3", "col4")

+---+----+----+----+----+

| id|col1|col2|col3|col4|

+---+----+----+----+----+

|  0| a1|  b1| c1| d1|

|  1| a2|  b2| c2| d2|

|  2| a3|  b3|null| d3|

|  3| a4|null|  c4| d4|

|  4|null|  b5| c5| d5|
