Go Up to Database Object Management
In addition to letting you create and perform basic editing on various object types, there are a number of actions can be applied to objects. While object action support differs by DBMS platform, they are most commonly implementations of:
- ALTER OBJECT TYPE clauses/options not typically available from object editors, such as REBUILD INDEX and RENAME
- Other SQL commands such as TRUNCATE, REORG, and LOCK
- System procedures and other available utilities
Most object actions are implemented as multi-panel wizards that guide you through the action. For an introduction to invoking object actions and working through the panels, see Overview of object actions/operations execution.
For a listing of available actions and access to detailed instructions, see Available object actions by DBMS.
