8.3. CALL


CALL procedure_name ( [ name => ] expression [, ...] )


Call a procedure.

Procedures can be provided by connectors to perform data manipulation or administrative tasks. For example, the System Connector defines a procedure for killing a running query.

Some connectors, such as the PostgreSQL Connector, are for systems that have their own stored procedures. These stored procedures are separate from the connector-defined procedures discussed here and thus are not directly callable via CALL.

See connector documentation for details on available procedures.


Call a procedure using positional arguments:

CALL test(123, 'apple');

Call a procedure using named arguments:

CALL test(name => 'apple', id => 123);

Call a procedure using a fully qualified name:

CALL catalog.schema.test();
