Identity columns - A new entry in Oracle Database 12cAuthor:
Corrado PiolaLast updated:
Oracle® Database 12c introduced Identity, an auto-incremental (system-generated) column.
In the previous database versions (until 11g), you usually implement an Identity by creating a Sequence and a Trigger.
From 12c onward, you can create your own Table and define the column that has to be generated as an Identity.
