HELP COLUMN output includes a Temporal Column field that displays V, S, R, or N, to
indicate a valid-time, system-time, temporal relationship constraint, or nontemporal
column, respectively. (Note that temporal relationship constraints are allowed on
ANSI temporal tables, but are not themselves ANSI-compliant.)
HELP COLUMN also includes fields named Without Overlaps Unique for ANSI temporal tables
that include a valid-time column. The values of this field can be Y or N.
HELP CONSTRAINT has a Type field that shows information about named constraints, including
temporal constraints. Note that HELP CONSTRAINT shows information only about named
constraints. Use SHOW TABLE to see information about unnamed constraints defined on
HELP SESSION includes a Temporal Qualifier field that shows ANSIQUALIFIER if the session
temporal qualifier is set to ANSIQUALIFIER, a requirement for working with ANSI temporal
tables, that is normally set automatically.
HELP TRIGGER includes ValidTime Type and TransactionTime Type fields that display
A to indicate trigger has been created on an ANSI temporal table.
HELP and SHOW statements display information that is relevant to ANSI temporal tables:
SHOW TABLE displays these additional items for ANSI temporal tables:
VALIDTIME and SYSTEM_TIME derived period columns and their component beginning and
ending bound Date/Timestamp columns
SYSTEM VERSIONING for system-versioned system-time tables
temporal PRIMARY KEY and UNIQUE constraint definitions having WITHOUT OVERLAPS
temporal referential integrity constraints with referencing and referenced period
