ReQL command: sync

Command syntax

table.sync() → object


sync ensures that writes on a given table are written to permanent storage. Queries that specify soft durability ({durability: 'soft'}) do not give such guarantees, so sync can be used to ensure the state of these queries. A call to sync does not return until all previous writes to the table are persisted.

If successful, the operation returns an object: {synced: 1}.

Example: After having updated multiple heroes with soft durability, we now want to wait until these changes are persisted.

r.table('marvel').sync().run(conn, callback)
