Indicates if the query completes the transaction Internal only

association?: boolean
benchmark?: boolean

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

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.

fields?: (keyof TAttributes)[]

An optional array of strings, representing database columns. If fields is provided, only those columns will be validated and saved.

hooks?: boolean

If false the applicable hooks will not be called. The default value depends on the context.


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

omitNull?: boolean

A flag that defines if null values should be passed as values or not.


raw?: boolean

If set to true, field and virtual setters will be ignored

reset?: boolean

returning?: boolean | (Col | Literal | keyof TAttributes)[]

Return the affected rows (only for postgres)

searchPath?: string

An optional parameter to specify the schema search_path (Postgres only)

silent?: boolean

If true, the updatedAt timestamp will not be updated.


transaction?: null | Transaction

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

validate?: boolean

If false, validations won't be run.



The WHERE clause. Can be many things from a hash of attributes to raw SQL.
