Triggers and Identity Columns

The following rules and restrictions apply to triggers and INSERT operations into tables with identity columns.

  • You cannot create a trigger definition if its triggering statement is an INSERT on a subject table that has an identity column and its triggered action statement or WHEN condition references that column.If a triggered statement makes row references to the table that is involved in the triggering statement, and the triggered statement is an INSERT operation into a table with a GENERATED ALWAYS identity column, Teradata Database substitutes a dummy value for the USING value for the referenced row and then generates the actual identity column number in the Dispatcher before sending it to its destination AMP.
