COMMIT (7) - Linux Man Pages

COMMIT: commit the current transaction

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(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.
