ALTER SEQUENCE

Applies to ✅ Open Source Edition   ✅ Express Edition   ✅ Professional Edition   ✅ Enterprise Edition

The following types of statements are supported when altering a sequence:

Alter sequence properties

jOOQ supports a variety of sequence properties through meta data and DDL.

// Cache a number of values for the sequence, typically on a per session basis.
create.alterSequence("sequence").cache(200).execute();
create.alterSequence("sequence").noCache().execute();

// Specify whether the sequence should cycle when it reaches the MAXVALUE
create.alterSequence("sequence").cycle().execute();
create.alterSequence("sequence").noCycle().execute();

// The increment by which a sequence should produce the next value
create.alterSequence("sequence").incrementBy(10).execute();

// The MAXVALUE before which the sequence should cycle if applicable
create.alterSequence("sequence").maxvalue(1000).execute();
create.alterSequence("sequence").noMaxvalue.execute();

// The MINVALUE from which the sequence should cycle if applicable
create.alterSequence("sequence").minvalue(1).execute();
create.alterSequence("sequence").noMinvalue.execute();

// Let the sequence restart with MINVALUE or with a specific value
create.alterSequence(S_AUTHOR_ID).restart().execute();
create.alterSequence(S_AUTHOR_ID).restartWith(1).execute();

// Let the sequence start with a specific value
create.alterSequence(S_AUTHOR_ID).startWith(1).execute();

RENAME

Like most object types, sequences can be renamed:

// Renaming the sequence
create.alterSequence("old_sequence").renameTo("new_sequence").execute();
