Hierarchy (view full)



Indicates if the query completes the transaction Internal only

benchmark?: boolean

Pass query execution time in milliseconds as second argument to logging function (options.logging).

Either an object of named parameter bindings in the format $param or an array of unnamed values to bind to $1, $2, etc in your SQL.

connection?: null | AbstractConnection

The connection on which this query must be run. Mutually exclusive with Transactionable.transaction.

Can be used to ensure that a query is run on the same connection as a previous query, which is useful when configuring session options.

Specifying this option takes precedence over CLS Transactions. If a transaction is running in the current AsyncLocalStorage context, it will be ignored in favor of the specified connection.

fieldMap?: FieldMap

Map returned fields to arbitrary names for SELECT query type if options.fieldMaps is present.

hardDelete?: boolean

If set to true, paranoid models will actually be deleted instead of soft deleted.

instance?: Model<any, any>

A sequelize instance used to build the return instance

logging?: false | ((sql, timing?) => void)

A function that gets executed while running the query to log the sql.

Type declaration

    • (sql, timing?): void
    • Parameters

      • sql: string
      • Optional timing: number

      Returns void

manualOnDelete?: ManualOnDelete

Manually handles the behavior of ON DELETE in JavaScript, instead of using the native database ON DELETE behavior. This option is useful when:

  • The deletion is a soft deletion.
  • You wish to run JS delete hooks for the cascading models.


mapToModel?: boolean

Map returned fields to model's fields if options.model or options.instance is present. Mapping will occur before building the model instance.

nest?: boolean

If true, transforms objects with . separated property names into nested objects using dottie.js. For example { 'user.username': 'john' } becomes { user: { username: 'john' }}. When nest is true, the query type is assumed to be 'SELECT', unless otherwise specified


noHooks?: boolean | readonly ("beforeDestroyMany" | "afterDestroyMany")[] | {
    except: readonly ("beforeDestroyMany" | "afterDestroyMany")[];

Controls which hooks should be run.

Possible values:

  • false: All hooks will be run. (default)
  • true: No hooks will be run.
  • An array of strings: The hooks listed in the array will not be run.
  • An object with the "except" property: Only the hooks listed in the array will be run.

Type declaration

  • except: readonly ("beforeDestroyMany" | "afterDestroyMany")[]
offset?: number | Nullish | Literal
plain?: boolean

Sets the query type to SELECT and return a single row

replacements?: BindOrReplacements
retry?: Options
supportsSearchPath?: boolean

If false do not prepend the query with the search_path (Postgres only)

transaction?: null | Transaction

The transaction in which this query must be run. Mutually exclusive with Transactionable.connection.

If the Sequelize disableClsTransactions option has not been set to true, and a transaction is running in the current AsyncLocalStorage context, that transaction will be used, unless null or another Transaction is manually specified here.

useMaster?: boolean

Force the query to use the write pool, regardless of the query type.
