Assert verifies that trigger exists. Fail when trigger with a given name has not been found in the database.

- Supported in Oracle and SQL Server framework versions.
- Netezza does not support triggers officially, however appliance does have _v_trigger system view that might allow users in the future to use this functionality (at list for system objects)


  • v_TriggerName – trigger name, Variable Character(255) in Oracle and Netezza, SYSNAME in SQL Server
  • v_UserMessage – message to report when assertion fails, Variable Character(255) in Oracle and Netezza, NVARCHAR(MAX) in SQL Server
