Let me elaborate on the title.

Suppose we have two tables, t1 and t2. t2 has a trigger t2_trgon it. Same transaction inserts/updates data in t1, then does insert/update in t2. t2_trg is fired and starts doing its thing. Is this trigger able to see all the changes done in t1?

P.s. I found other topics on this problem, but they we're mostly for SQL Server.

  • Yes, unless the trigger created with PRAGMA AUTONOMOUS_TRANSACTION

Regular trigger will see changes made in other tables within the same transaction. However, if you create the trigger (or other programmable object) with PRAGMA AUTONOMOUS_TRANSACTION, it will be executed within the scope of new transaction and won't be able to see "parent" transaction changes.
