Managing Transactions in the RAI Console

The Console provides a list of transactions — queries or updates to the database, by login or account.

You can use the list of transactions to view a history of your transactions, view past query results, or identify, cancel, or get support on a lagging query.

To manage transactions, click the Transactions icon (the clock) on the left side of the Console.

The Transactions page opens:

list of users

For each transaction, the Transactions page lists information such as the database, engine, query, state, start/finish time, duration, and whether or not the transaction was read-only.

Transaction States

Transactions can be in one of four states:

CreatedTransaction has been issued but is not yet running.
RunningTransaction is currently running.
CompletedTransaction has run successfully.
AbortedTransaction has been canceled by the user or aborted by the system. See Abort Reasons below for more details.

Canceling a Transaction

While a transaction is running, you can cancel it by clicking Cancel in the far right-hand column. Canceled transactions will eventually move to an aborted state. Note that cancellation is best-effort: If a transaction happens to complete before the system processes the cancellation, it may move to a completed state.

Viewing All Database Transactions

By default, the Transactions page displays the last 100 transactions for only your login.

To view transactions for your entire account, click the Only My Transactions switch in the upper right-hand corner of the Transactions page so that it is in the Off position.

To switch back to only your transactions, click the Only My Transactions switch again so that it is in the On position.


Note: SDK OAuth credentials are shared across the entire account, not per-user, so the Only My Transactions toggle will only show transactions you initiated from the web Console UI.

Searching Transactions

You can search for transactions by entering text in the search box. Search conducts a fuzzy, client-side search on all columns.

Search returns only for transactions already displayed; it will not return results for earlier transactions.

Viewing Transaction Details

You can view detailed information on a transaction, which looks like this:

list of users

The transaction detail page displays the following information:

  • Details on the transaction, such as the time it was created and its duration.
  • The Rel code for the transaction.
  • If applicable, the transaction’s results.

Abort Reasons

Abort ReasonExplanation
System Internal ErrorSystem has experienced an error.
CancelledTransaction was canceled by user.
Engine Shutting DownEngine was shut down before transaction could complete.
Invalid RequestTransaction resulted in invalid request to server.
Integrity Constraint ViolationTransaction cancelled because query violates an integrity constraint. See the Integrity Constraints concept guide for more details. In these cases, the transaction still shows results, so that you can debug the query.
