Procedures

Table of Contents

Dolt SQL Procedures

Dolt provides native stored procedures to allow access to dolt CLI commands from within a SQL session. Each procedure is named after the dolt command line command it matches, and takes arguments in an identical form.
For example, dolt checkout -b feature-branch is equivalent to executing the following SQL statement:
CALL DOLT_CHECKOUT('-b', 'feature-branch');
SQL procedures are provided for all imperative CLI commands. For commands that inspect the state of the database and print some information, (dolt diff, dolt log, etc.) system tables are provided instead.
One important note: all procedures modify state only for the current session, not for all clients. So for example, whereas running dolt checkout feature-branch will change the working HEAD for anyone who subsequently runs a command from the same dolt database directory, running CALL DOLT_CHECKOUT('feature-branch') only changes the working HEAD for that database session. The right way to think of this is that the command line environment is effectively a session, one that happens to be shared with whomever runs CLI commands from that directory.

DOLT_ADD()

Adds working changes to staged for this session. Works exactly like dolt add on the CLI, and takes the same arguments.
After adding tables to the staged area, they can be committed with DOLT_COMMIT().
CALL DOLT_ADD('-A');
CALL DOLT_ADD('.');
CALL DOLT_ADD('table1', 'table2');

Options

table: Table(s) to add to the list tables staged to be committed. The abbreviation '.' can be used to add all tables.
-A: Stages all tables with changes.

Example

-- Set the current database for the session
USE mydb;
-- Make modifications
UPDATE table
SET column = "new value"
WHERE pk = "key";
-- Stage all changes.
CALL DOLT_ADD('-A');
-- Commit the changes.
CALL DOLT_COMMIT('-m', 'committing all changes');

DOLT_BACKUP()

Sync with a configured backup. Other backup commands not supported via SQL yet.
CALL DOLT_BACKUP('sync', 'name');

Example

-- Set the current database for the session
USE mydb;
-- Upload the current database contents to the named backup
CALL dolt_backup('sync', 'my-backup')

DOLT_BRANCH()

Create, delete, and rename branches.
To list branches, use the DOLT_BRANCHES system table, instead of the DOLT_BRANCH() stored procedure.
To look up the current branch, use the @@<dbname>_head_ref system variable, or the active_branch() SQL function, as shown in the examples section below.
WARNING: In a multi-session server environment, Dolt will prevent you from deleting or renaming a branch in use in another session. You can force renaming or deletion by passing the --force option, but be aware that active clients on other sessions will no longer be able to execute statements after their active branch is removed and will need to end their session and reconnect.
-- Create a new branch from the current HEAD
CALL DOLT_BRANCH('myNewBranch');
-- Create a new branch from start point of tip of feature1 branch.
CALL DOLT_BRANCH('myNewBranch', 'feature1');
-- Create a new branch by copying an existing branch
-- Will fail if feature1 branch already exists
CALL DOLT_BRANCH('-c', 'main', 'feature1');
-- Create or replace a branch by copying an existing branch
-- '-f' forces the copy, even if feature1 branch already exists
CALL DOLT_BRANCH('-c', '-f', 'main', 'feature1');
-- Delete a branch
CALL DOLT_BRANCH('-d', 'branchToDelete');
-- Rename a branch
CALL DOLT_BRANCH('-m', 'currentBranchName', 'newBranchName')

Options

-c, --copy: Create a copy of a branch. Must be followed by the name of the source branch to copy and the name of the new branch to create. Without the --force option, the copy will fail if the new branch already exists.
-m, --move: Move/rename a branch. Must be followed by the current name of an existing branch and a new name for that branch. Without the --force option, renaming a branch in use on another server session will fail. Be aware that forcibly renaming or deleting a branch in use in another session will require that session to disconnect and reconnect before it can execute statements again.
-d, --delete: Delete a branch. Must be followed by the name of an existing branch to delete. Without the --force option, deleting a branch in use on another server session will fail. Be aware that forcibly renaming or deleting a branch in use in another session will require that session to disconnect and reconnect before it can execute statements again.
-f, --force: When used with the --copy option, allows for recreating a branch from another branch, even if the branch already exists. When used with the --move or --delete options, force will allow you to rename or delete branches in use in other active server sessions, but be aware that this will require those other sessions to disconnect and reconnect before they can execute statements again.
-D: Shortcut for --delete --force.

Examples

-- List the available branches
SELECT * FROM DOLT_BRANCHES;
+--------+----------------------------------+
| name | hash |
+--------+----------------------------------+
| backup | nsqtc86d54kafkuf0a24s4hqircvg68g |

+--------+----------------------------------+
-- Create a new branch for development work from the tip of head and switch to it
CALL DOLT_BRANCH('myNewFeature');
CALL DOLT_CHECKOUT('myNewFeature');
-- View your current branch
select active_branch();
+----------------+
| active_branch |
+----------------+
| myNewFeature |
+----------------+
-- Create a new branch from an existing branch
CALL DOLT_BRANCH('-c', 'backup', 'bugfix-3482');
-- Rename a branch
CALL DOLT_BRANCH('-m', 'bugfix-3482', 'critical-bugfix-3482');
-- Delete a branch
CALL DOLT_BRANCH('-d', 'old-unused-branch');

DOLT_CHECKOUT()

Switches this session to a different branch.
With table names as arguments, restores those tables to their contents in the current HEAD.
When switching to a different branch, your session state must be clean. COMMIT or ROLLBACK any changes before switching to a different branch.
Note, unlike the Git command-line, if you have a modified working set, those changes remain on the branch you modified after a DOLT_CHECKOUT(). The working set does not transfer to the new checked out branch. We modified this behavior because Dolt assumes multiple users of a branch in SQL context. Having one user change the state of other users working set was deemed undesirable behavior.
CALL DOLT_CHECKOUT('-b', 'my-new-branch');
CALL DOLT_CHECKOUT('my-existing-branch');
CALL DOLT_CHECKOUT('my-table');

Options

-b: Create a new branch with the given name.

Example

-- Set the current database for the session
USE mydb;
-- Create and checkout to a new branch.
CALL DOLT_CHECKOUT('-b', 'feature-branch');
-- Make modifications
UPDATE table
SET column = "new value"
WHERE pk = "key";
-- Stage and commit all changes.
CALL DOLT_COMMIT('-a', '-m', 'committing all changes');
-- Go back to main
CALL DOLT_CHECKOUT('main');

DOLT_CLEAN()

Deletes untracked tables in the working set.
Deletes only specified untracked tables if table names passed as arguments.
With --dry-run flag, tests whether removing untracked tables will return with zero status.
CALL DOLT_CLEAN();
CALL DOLT_CLEAN('untracked-table');
CALL DOLT_CLEAN('--dry-run');

Options

--dry-run: Test removing untracked tables from working set.

Example

-- Create three new tables
create table tracked (x int primary key);
create table committed (x int primary key);
create table untracked (x int primary key);
-- Commit the first table
call dolt_add('committed');
call dolt_commit('-m', 'commit a table');

-- Track the second table
call dolt_add('tracked');
-- Observe database status

+----------------+

DOLT_CLONE()

Clones an existing Dolt database into a new database within the current Dolt environment. The existing database must be specified as an argument, either as a file URL that points to an existing Dolt database on disk, or a doltremote URL for remote hosted database (e.g. a database hosted on DoltHub or DoltLab), or a <org>/<database> (e.g. dolthub/us-jails) as a shorthand for a database hosted on DoltHub. An additional argument can optionally be supplied to specify the name of the new, cloned database, otherwise the current name of the existing database will be used.
NOTE: When cloning from a file URL, you must currently include the .dolt/noms subdirectories. For more details see the GitHub tracking issue, dolt#1860.
CALL DOLT_CLONE('file:///myDatabasesDir/database/.dolt/noms');
CALL DOLT_CLONE('dolthub/us-jails', 'myCustomDbName');

Options

--remote: Name of the remote to be added to the new, cloned database. The default is 'origin'.
-b, --branch: The branch to be cloned. If not specified all branches will be cloned.
--aws-region: The cloud provider region associated with the remote database being cloned.
--aws-creds-type: The credential type when cloning a remote database from AWS. Valid options are role, env, and file.
--aws-creds-file: The AWS credentials file for use when cloning a remote database from AWS.
--aws-creds-profile: The AWS profile name holding the credentials to use when cloning a remote database from AWS.

Examples

-- Clone the dolthub/us-jails database from DoltHub using the <org>/<database> notation.
CALL DOLT_CLONE('dolthub/us-jails');
-- Use the new, cloned database
-- NOTE: backticks are required for database names with hyphens
USE `us-jails`;
SHOW TABLES;

-- Clone the dolthub/museum-collections database, this time using a doltremoteapi URL, cloning
-- only a single branch, customizing the remote name, and providing a custom database name.
CALL DOLT_CLONE('-branch', 'prod', '-remote', 'dolthub',
'https://doltremoteapi.dolthub.com/dolthub/ge-taxi-demo', 'taxis');
-- Verify that only the prod branch was cloned
USE taxis;

+---------+--------------------------------------------------------+-----------------------------------------+--------+

DOLT_COMMIT()

Commits staged tables to HEAD. Works exactly like dolt commit with each value directly following the flag.
DOLT_COMMIT() also commits the current transaction.
CALL DOLT_COMMIT('-a', '-m', 'This is a commit');
CALL DOLT_COMMIT('-m', 'This is a commit');
CALL DOLT_COMMIT('-m', 'This is a commit', '--author', 'John Doe <[email protected]>');

Options

-m, --message: Use the given <msg> as the commit message. Required
-a, --all: Stages all modified tables (but not newly created tables) before committing.
-A, --ALL: Stages all tables (including new tables) before committing.
--allow-empty: Allow recording a commit that has the exact same data as its sole parent. This is usually a mistake, so it is disabled by default. This option bypasses that safety.
--date: Specify the date used in the commit. If not specified the current system time is used.
--author: Specify an explicit author using the standard "A U Thor [email protected]" format.

Examples

-- Set the current database for the session
USE mydb;
-- Make modifications
UPDATE table
SET column = "new value"
WHERE pk = "key";
-- Stage all changes and commit.
CALL DOLT_COMMIT('-a', '-m', 'This is a commit', '--author', 'John Doe <[email protected]>');

DOLT_FETCH()

Fetch refs, along with the objects necessary to complete their histories and update remote-tracking branches. Works exactly like dolt fetch on the CLI, and takes the same arguments.
CALL DOLT_FETCH('origin', 'main');
CALL DOLT_FETCH('origin', 'feature-branch');
CALL DOLT_FETCH('origin', 'refs/heads/main:refs/remotes/origin/main');

Options

--force: Update refs to remote branches with the current state of the remote, overwriting any conflicting history

Example

-- Get remote main
CALL DOLT_FETCH('origin', 'main');
-- Inspect the hash of the fetched remote branch
SELECT HASHOF('origin/main');
-- Merge remote main with current branch
CALL DOLT_MERGE('origin/main');

DOLT_MERGE()

Incorporates changes from the named commits (since the time their histories diverged from the current branch) into the current branch. Works exactly like dolt merge on the CLI, and takes the same arguments.
Any resulting merge conflicts must be resolved before the transaction can be committed or a new Dolt commit created. DOLT_MERGE() creates a new commit for any successful merge with auto-generated commit message if not defined.
CALL DOLT_MERGE('feature-branch'); -- Optional --squash parameter
CALL DOLT_MERGE('feature-branch', '-no-ff', '-m', 'This is a msg for a non fast forward merge');
CALL DOLT_MERGE('--abort');

Options

--no-ff: Create a merge commit even when the merge resolves as a fast-forward.
--squash: Merges changes to the working set without updating the commit history
-m <msg>, --message=<msg>: Use the given as the commit message. This is only useful for --non-ff commits.
--abort: Abort the current conflict resolution process, and try to reconstruct the pre-merge state.
--author: Specify an explicit author using the standard "A U Thor [email protected]" format.
When merging a branch, your session state must be clean. COMMIT orROLLBACK any changes, then DOLT_COMMIT() to create a new dolt commit on the target branch.
If the merge causes conflicts or constraint violations, you must resolve them using the dolt_conflicts system tables before the transaction can be committed. See Dolt system tables for details.

Example

-- Set the current database for the session
USE mydb;
-- Create and checkout to a new branch.
CALL DOLT_CHECKOUT('-b', 'feature-branch');
-- Make modifications
UPDATE table
SET column = "new value"
WHERE pk = "key";
-- Stage and commit all changes.
CALL DOLT_COMMIT('-a', '-m', 'committing all changes');
-- Go back to main
CALL DOLT_MERGE('feature-branch', '--author', 'John Doe <[email protected]>');

DOLT_RESET()

Default mode resets staged tables to their HEAD state. Can also be used to reset a database to a specific commit. Works exactly like dolt reset on the CLI, and takes the same arguments.
Like other data modifications, after a reset you must COMMIT the transaction for any changes to affected tables to be visible to other clients.
CALL DOLT_RESET('--hard', 'featureBranch');
CALL DOLT_RESET('--hard', 'commitHash123abc');
CALL DOLT_RESET('myTable'); -- soft reset

Options

--hard: Resets the working tables and staged tables. Any changes to tracked tables in the working tree since are discarded.
--soft: Does not touch the working tables, but removes all tables staged to be committed. This is the default behavior.

Example

-- Set the current database for the session
USE mydb;
-- Make modifications
UPDATE table
SET column = "new value"
WHERE pk = "key";
-- Reset the changes permanently.
CALL DOLT_RESET('--hard');
-- Makes some more changes.
UPDATE table
SET column = "new value"
WHERE pk = "key";
-- Stage the table.
CALL DOLT_ADD('table')
-- Unstage the table.
CALL DOLT_RESET('table')

DOLT_REMOTE()

Adds a remote for a database at given url, or removes an existing remote with its remote-tracking branches and configuration settings. Works exactly like dolt remote command on the CLI, and takes the same arguments except for listing remotes. To list existing remotes, use the dolt_remotes system table.
CALL DOLT_REMOTE('add','remote_name','remote_url');
CALL DOLT_REMOTE('remove','existing_remote_name');

Options

--aws-region=<region>: Specify a cloud provider region associated with this remote.
--aws-creds-type=<creds-type>: Specify a credential type. Valid options are role, env, and file.
--aws-creds-file=<file>: Specify an AWS credentials file.
--aws-creds-profile=<profile>: Specify an AWS profile to use.

Example

-- Add a HTTP remote
CALL DOLT_REMOTE('add','origin','https://doltremoteapi.dolthub.com/Dolthub/museum-collections');
-- Add a HTTP remote with shorthand notation for the URL
CALL DOLT_REMOTE('add','origin1','Dolthub/museum-collections');
-- Add a filesystem based remote
CALL DOLT_REMOTE('add','origin2','file:///Users/jennifer/datasets/museum-collections');
-- List remotes to check.
SELECT * FROM dolt_remotes;
+---------+--------------------------------------------------------------+-----------------------------------------+--------+
| name | url | fetch_specs | params |
+---------+--------------------------------------------------------------+-----------------------------------------+--------+
| origin | https://doltremoteapi.dolthub.com/Dolthub/museum-collections | ["refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*"] | {} |
| origin1 | https://doltremoteapi.dolthub.com/Dolthub/museum-collections | ["refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin1/*"] | {} |
| origin2 | file:///Users/jennifer/datasets/museum-collections | ["refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin2/*"] | {} |
+---------+--------------------------------------------------------------+-----------------------------------------+--------+
-- Remove a remote
CALL DOLT_REMOTE('remove','origin1');
-- List remotes to check.
SELECT * FROM dolt_remotes;
+---------+--------------------------------------------------------------+-----------------------------------------+--------+
| name | url | fetch_specs | params |
+---------+--------------------------------------------------------------+-----------------------------------------+--------+
| origin | https://doltremoteapi.dolthub.com/Dolthub/museum-collections | ["refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*"] | {} |
| origin2 | file:///Users/jennifer/datasets/museum-collections | ["refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin2/*"] | {} |
+---------+--------------------------------------------------------------+-----------------------------------------+--------+

DOLT_REVERT()

Reverts the changes introduced in a commit, or set of commits. Creates a new commit from the current HEAD that reverses the changes in all the specified commits. If multiple commits are given, they are applied in the order given.
CALL DOLT_REVERT('gtfv1qhr5le61njimcbses9oom0de41e');
CALL DOLT_REVERT('HEAD~2');
CALL DOLT_REVERT('HEAD', '[email protected]');

Options

--author=<author>: Specify an explicit author using the standard A U Thor <[email protected]> format.

Example

-- Create a table and add data in multiple commits
CREATE TABLE t1(pk INT PRIMARY KEY, c VARCHAR(255));
CALL dolt_add("t1")
CALL dolt_commit("-m", "Creating table t1");
INSERT INTO t1 VALUES(1, "a"), (2, "b"), (3, "c");
CALL dolt_commit("-am", "Adding some data");
insert into t1 VALUES(10, "aa"), (20, "bb"), (30, "cc");
CALL dolt_commit("-am", "Adding some more data");
-- Examine the changes made in the commit immediately before the current HEAD commit
SELECT to_pk, to_c, to_commit, diff_type FROM dolt_diff_t1 WHERE to_commit=hashof("HEAD~1");
+-------+------+----------------------------------+-----------+
| to_pk | to_c | to_commit | diff_type |
+-------+------+----------------------------------+-----------+
| 1 | a | fc4fks6jutcnee9ka6458nmuot7rl1r2 | added |
| 2 | b | fc4fks6jutcnee9ka6458nmuot7rl1r2 | added |
| 3 | c | fc4fks6jutcnee9ka6458nmuot7rl1r2 | added |
+-------+------+----------------------------------+-----------+
-- Revert the commit immediately before the current HEAD commit
CALL dolt_revert("HEAD~1");
-- Check out the new commit created by dolt_revert
SELECT commit_hash, message FROM dolt_log limit 1;
+----------------------------------+---------------------------+
| commit_hash | message |
+----------------------------------+---------------------------+
| vbevrdghj3in3napcgdsch0mq7f8en4v | Revert "Adding some data" |
+----------------------------------+---------------------------+
-- View the exact changes made by the revert commit
SELECT from_pk, from_c, to_commit, diff_type FROM dolt_diff_t1 WHERE to_commit=hashof("HEAD");
+---------+--------+----------------------------------+-----------+
| from_pk | from_c | to_commit | diff_type |
+---------+--------+----------------------------------+-----------+
| 1 | a | vbevrdghj3in3napcgdsch0mq7f8en4v | removed |
| 2 | b | vbevrdghj3in3napcgdsch0mq7f8en4v | removed |
| 3 | c | vbevrdghj3in3napcgdsch0mq7f8en4v | removed |
+---------+--------+----------------------------------+-----------+

DOLT_PUSH()

Updates remote refs using local refs, while sending objects necessary to complete the given refs. Works exactly like dolt push on the CLI, and takes the same arguments.
CALL DOLT_PUSH('origin', 'main');
CALL DOLT_PUSH('--force', 'origin', 'main');

Options

--force: Update the remote with local history, overwriting any conflicting history in the remote.

Example

-- Checkout new branch
CALL DOLT_CHECKOUT('-b', 'feature-branch');
-- Add a table
CREATE TABLE test (a int primary key);
-- Create commit
CALL DOLT_COMMIT('-a', '-m', 'create table test');
-- Push to remote
CALL DOLT_PUSH('origin', 'feature-branch');

DOLT_PULL()

Fetch from and integrate with another database or a local branch. In its default mode, dolt pull is shorthand for dolt fetch followed by dolt merge <remote>/<branch>. Works exactly like dolt pull on the CLI, and takes the same arguments.
Any resulting merge conflicts must be resolved before the transaction can be committed or a new Dolt commit created.
CALL DOLT_PULL('origin');
CALL DOLT_PULL('origin', 'some-branch');
CALL DOLT_PULL('feature-branch', '--force');

Options

--no-ff: Create a merge commit even when the merge resolves as a fast-forward.
--squash: Merges changes to the working set without updating the commit history
--force: Ignores any foreign key warnings and proceeds with the commit.
When merging a branch, your session state must be clean. COMMIT orROLLBACK any changes, then DOLT_COMMIT() to create a new dolt commit on the target branch.
If the merge causes conflicts or constraint violations, you must resolve them using the dolt_conflicts system tables before the transaction can be committed. See Dolt system tables for details.

Example

-- Update local working set with remote changes
-- Note: this requires upstream tracking information to be set in order for
-- Dolt to know what remote branch to merge
CALL DOLT_PULL('origin');
-- Update local working set with remote changes from an explicit branch
CALL DOLT_PULL('origin', 'some-branch');
-- View a log of new commits
SELECT * FROM dolt_log LIMIT 5;

DOLT_TAG()

Creates a new tag that points at specified commit ref, or deletes an existing tag. Works exactly like dolt tag command on the CLI, and takes the same arguments except for listing tags. To list existing tags, use dolt_tags system table.
CALL DOLT_TAG('tag_name','commit_ref');
CALL DOLT_TAG('-m','message','tag_name','commit_ref');
CALL DOLT_TAG('-d','tag_name');

Options

-m: Use the given message as the tag message.
-d: Delete a tag.

Example

-- Set the current database for the session
USE mydb;
-- Make modifications
UPDATE table
SET column = "new value"
WHERE pk = "key";
-- Stage and commit all changes.
CALL DOLT_COMMIT('-am', 'committing all changes');
-- Create a tag for the HEAD commit.
CALL DOLT_TAG('v1','head','-m','creating v1 tag');

DOLT_VERIFY_CONSTRAINTS()

Verifies that working set changes (inserts, updates, and/or deletes) satisfy the defined table constraints. Currently, the command only verifies foreign key constraints. If any constraints are violated they are written to the DOLT_CONSTRAINT_VIOLATIONS table.
DOLT_VERIFY_CONSTRAINTS by default does not detect constraints for row changes that have been previously committed. The --all option can be specified if you wish to validate all rows in the database. If FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS has been disabled in prior commits, you may want to use the --all option to ensure that the current state is consistent and no violated constraints are missed.

Arguments and Options

<table>: The table(s) to check constraints on. If omitted, checks all tables.
-a, --all: Verifies constraints against every row.
-o, --output-only: Disables writing results to the DOLT_CONSTRAINT_VIOLATIONS system table.

Example

For the below examples consider the following schema:
CREATE TABLE parent (
pk int PRIMARY KEY
);
CREATE TABLE child (
pk int PRIMARY KEY,
parent_fk int,
FOREIGN KEY (parent_fk) REFERENCES parent(pk)
);
A simple case:
-- enable dolt_force_transaction_commit so that we can inspect the
-- violation in our working set
SET dolt_force_transaction_commit = ON;
SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS = OFF;
INSERT INTO PARENT VALUES (1);
-- Violates child's foreign key constraint
INSERT INTO CHILD VALUES (1, -1);
CALL DOLT_VERIFY_CONSTRAINTS();
/*
+------------+
| violations |
+------------+
| 1 |
+------------+
*/
SELECT * from dolt_constraint_violations;
/*
+-------+----------------+
| table | num_violations |
+-------+----------------+
| child | 1 |
+-------+----------------+
*/
SELECT violation_type, pk, parent_fk from dolt_constraint_violations_child;
/*
+----------------+----+-----------+
| violation_type | pk | parent_fk |
+----------------+----+-----------+
| foreign key | 1 | -1 |
+----------------+----+-----------+
*/
Using --all to verify all rows:
SET DOLT_FORCE_TRANSACTION_COMMIT = ON;
SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS = OFF;
INSERT INTO PARENT VALUES (1);
INSERT INTO CHILD VALUES (1, -1);
CALL DOLT_COMMIT('-am', 'violating rows');
CALL DOLT_VERIFY_CONSTRAINTS();
/*
No violations are returned since there are no changes in the working set.
+------------+
| violations |
+------------+
| 0 |
+------------+
*/
SELECT * from dolt_constraints_violations_child;
/*
+----------------+----+-----------+----------------+
| violation_type | pk | parent_fk | violation_info |
+----------------+----+-----------+----------------+
+----------------+----+-----------+----------------+
*/
CALL DOLT_VERIFY_CONSTRAINTS('--all');
/*
When all rows are considered, constraint violations are found.
+------------+
| violations |
+------------+
| 1 |
+------------+
*/
SELECT * from dolt_constraint_violations_child;
/*
+----------------+----+-----------+
| violation_type | pk | parent_fk |
+----------------+----+-----------+
| foreign key | 1 | -1 |
+----------------+----+-----------+
*/
Checking specific tables only:
SET DOLT_FORCE_TRANSACTION_COMMIT = ON;
SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS = OFF;
INSERT INTO PARENT VALUES (1);
INSERT INTO CHILD VALUES (1, -1);
CALL DOLT_VERIFY_CONSTRAINTS('parent');
/*
+------------+
| violations |
+------------+
| 0 |
+------------+
*/
CALL DOLT_VERIFY_CONSTRAINTS('child');
/*
+------------+
| violations |
+------------+
| 1 |
+------------+
*/
SELECT * from dolt_constraint_violations_child;
/*
+----------------+----+-----------+
| violation_type | pk | parent_fk |
+----------------+----+-----------+
| foreign key | 1 | -1 |
+----------------+----+-----------+
