Add a named constraint.

If you alter a nontemporal table that is defined with CHECK constraints into a temporal table with either valid time or transaction time, Teradata Database automatically converts the definitions for those existing constraints into CURRENT CHECK constraints.

However, if there are any existing UNIQUE or PRIMARY KEY constraints defined on the nontemporal table, the system returns an error to the requestor.

You cannot place a constraint on a column with the JSON data type.
