Performing a nontemporal delete on a bitemporal table physically deletes the specified rows. Because a nontemporal delete can be used to remove history rows from the table, the NONTEMPORAL privilege is required to perform nontemporal operations on temporal tables that have transaction time. Nontemporal deletes should be used only if absolutely necessary, and only by appropriately authorized personnel.
