Each statement within SurrealDB is run within its own transaction. If a set of changes need to be made together, then groups of statements can be run together as a single transaction, either succeeding as a whole, or failing without leaving any residual data modifications.
COMMIT TRANSACTION statement can be used to commit a set of statements within a transaction, ensuring that all data modifications become a permanent part of the database.
COMMIT [ TRANSACTION ];
The following query shows example usage of this statement.
BEGIN TRANSACTION; -- Setup accounts CREATE account:one SET balance = 135,605.16; CREATE account:two SET balance = 91,031.31; -- Move money UPDATE account:one SET balance += 300.00; UPDATE account:two SET balance -= 300.00; -- Finalise all changes COMMIT TRANSACTION;
