MySQL compatibility

  • TiDB does not support savepoints or the syntax ROLLBACK TO SAVEPOINT.
  • TiDB parses but ignores the syntax ROLLBACK AND [NO] RELEASE. This functionality is used in MySQL to disconnect the client session immediately after rolling back the transaction. In TiDB, it is recommended to instead use the mysql_close() functionality of your client driver.
  • TiDB parses but ignores the syntax ROLLBACK AND [NO] CHAIN. This functionality is used in MySQL to immediately start a new transaction with the same isolation level while the current transaction is being rolled back. In TiDB, it is recommended to instead start a new transaction.
