KILL statement

The KILL statement is used to terminate a running live query.

While the KILL statement does accept a value type, this value must resolve to a UUID. Consequently, it will accept a string literal of a UUID or a param.

Statement syntax

SurrealQL Syntax
KILL @value;

Example usage

Basic usage

The KILL statement expects the UUID of a running live query to be passed.

KILL "0189d6e3-8eac-703a-9a48-d9faa78b44b9";

The KILL statement also allows for parameters to be used.

-- Define the parameter
LET $live_query_id = "0189d6e3-8eac-703a-9a48-d9faa78b44b9";
-- Use the parameter
KILL $live_query_id;
