primary key sql

A primary key is a field in a table which uniquely identifies each row/record in a database table. Primary keys must contain unique values. A primary key column cannot have NULL values.

A table can have only one primary key, which may consist of single or multiple fields. When multiple fields are used as a primary key, they are called a composite key.

If a table has a primary key defined on any field(s), then you cannot have two records having the same value of that field(s).

A primary key allows each record in a table to be uniquely identified. There can only be one
primary key per table, and you can assign this constraint to any single or combination of columns.
However, this means each value within this column(s) must be unique.
Typically in a table, the primary key is an ID column, and is usually paired with the AUTO_
INCREMENT keyword. This means the value increases automatically as new records are created.
CREATE TABLE users (
id int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
first_name varchar(255),
last_name varchar(255) NOT NULL,
address varchar(255),
email varchar(255),
PRIMARY KEY (id)
);
