CREATE SEQUENCE

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

The CREATE SEQUENCE statement is used to create a new sequence in the database catalog.

// Create a sequence with default flags
create.createSequence("sequence").execute();

Sequence flags

Many dialects support standard SQL sequence flag in CREATE SEQUENCE and also ALTER SEQUENCE statements:

All of these flags can be combined in a single CREATE SEQUENCE statement.

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

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

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

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

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

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