Assigning a Permanent Journal to a Table

To assign a permanent journal table to a new data table, the specified journal table must exist in the specified database. If it does not, you can add or modify a permanent journal table by submitting appropriate MODIFY DATABASE or MODIFY USER requests. Then you can resubmit your CREATE TABLE request or submit an ALTER TABLE request to assign the new permanent journal table to the existing data table.

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

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