NAME

COMMIT - commit the current transaction

 

SYNOPSIS

COMMIT [ WORK | TRANSACTION ]

 

DESCRIPTION

COMMIT commits the current transaction. All changes made by the transaction become visible to others and are guaranteed to be durable if a crash occurs.  

PARAMETERS

WORK
TRANSACTION
Optional key words. They have no effect.
 

NOTES

Use ROLLBACK [rollback(7)] to abort a transaction.

Issuing COMMIT when not inside a transaction does no harm, but it will provoke a warning message.  

EXAMPLES

To commit the current transaction and make all changes permanent:

COMMIT;

 

COMPATIBILITY

The SQL standard only specifies the two forms COMMIT and COMMIT WORK. Otherwise, this command is fully conforming.

BEGIN [begin(7)], ROLLBACK [rollback(l)]
