To assign a permanent journal table to a new data table, the specified journal table must exist in the specified database. You can add or modify a permanent journal table by submitting appropriate MODIFY DATABASE or MODIFY USER statements. Then, you can resubmit your CREATE TABLE statement or submit an ALTER TABLE statement to assign the new permanent journal table to the existing data table.

PERMANENT journaling is not supported for NoPI, column-partitioned, global temporary, or volatile tables.

Unless specified as part of the CREATE TABLE statement, fallback protection for the data in a new table defaults to that specified for the database or user in which the table is created.
