# tf.get_seed(op_seed)

### tf.get_seed(op_seed)

See the guide: Building Graphs > Defining new operations

Returns the local seeds an operation should use given an op-specific seed.

Given operation-specific seed, op_seed, this helper function returns two seeds derived from graph-level and op-level seeds. Many random operations internally use the two seeds to allow user to change the seed globally for a graph, or for only specific operations.

For details on how the graph-level seed interacts with op seeds, see set_random_seed.

#### Args:

• op_seed: integer.

#### Returns:

A tuple of two integers that should be used for the local seed of this operation.
