Bug report: Temporal tables in SQL Server, not possible to create new records

I cannot seem to create new records in a temporal table in SQL Server 2016, since the start_date and end_date fields are seen as required, whereas they are system generated and cannot be included in a Patch statement.

 

It is possible to update records, however.

 

Has anyone found a work-around?

Hi Meneghino,

 

Per my certain knowledge, Local temporary tables are visible only in the current session.


Are you using Local temporary table or global temporary table?


When you configuring Patch function, what error message do you get?

Hi Mabel,

 

I think you might be confusing temporary tables with temporal tables.

 

Temporal tables are a feature in SQL 2016 that helps to maintain a history of data changes.

Hi @v-yamao-msft

@timl is correct, I am talking about temporal tables, which are a feature of SQL server 2016 and Azure SQL DB.

Please let me know.

@Meneghino, I am facing same issue. Have this issue been resolved??

Hi @Meneghino,@timl,

 

Thanks for correcting me.


I will take some further investigation on this issue and back once I got any updates.


Thanks for your understanding and patience.

Hi @v-yamao-msft, is there any update on this?
Thanks.

Hi Meneghino,

Hi Meneghino,

 

I have some updates for you.

 

Temporal table insertion is not supported currently. This is a new feature and PGs have already marked it in the backlog.

 

It would be great if you could create a new request on PowerApps ideas Forum, other customers who have the same request will vote your idea at here. Hope it can be released in the future releases.
