NAME

       ABORT - abort the current transaction

SYNOPSIS

       ABORT [ WORK | TRANSACTION ]

DESCRIPTION

       ABORT rolls back the current transaction and causes all the updates made by the
       transaction to be discarded. This command is identical in behavior to the standard SQL
       command ROLLBACK(7), and is present only for historical reasons.

PARAMETERS

       WORK, TRANSACTION
           Optional key words. They have no effect.

NOTES

       Use COMMIT(7) to successfully terminate a transaction.

       Issuing ABORT when not inside a transaction does no harm, but it will provoke a warning
       message.

EXAMPLES

       To abort all changes:

           ABORT;

COMPATIBILITY

       This command is a PostgreSQL extension present for historical reasons.  ROLLBACK is the
       equivalent standard SQL command.

       BEGIN(7), COMMIT(7), ROLLBACK(7)
