Triggers invoke the following behavior when fired as the result of an UPDATE (Upsert Form) request:

Trigger Defined on this Action Description
UPDATE Fired in all cases for qualified rows.

No insert triggers are performed.

INSERT Fired only if no row is updated and the INSERT is performed.

If no rows qualify, then no triggers are fired.

Triggers are fired as if the UPDATE and INSERT components in the atomic upsert request are performed as separate statements: unconditionally for UPDATE and conditionally for INSERT. The INSERT is performed only when no rows qualify for the UPDATE.
