Use the Transaction element to group together operations that are executed as a single transaction during shredding. Only one transaction is allowed. A transaction contains one or more Operation elements, each describing an insert, update, delete or upsert operation against a single table.

Each Operation element has a type attribute that describes the type of the operation. This attribute has one of the following values:

  • "insert"
  • "update"
  • "delete"
  • "upsert"

The Operation element contains a Table element that identifies the target table to be updated by the shredding process.
