Signalling Support

Connect to the following signals to get notified before and after changes are committed to the database. Tracking changes adds significant overhead, so it is only enabled if SQLALCHEMY_TRACK_MODIFICATIONS is enabled in the config. In most cases, you’ll probably be better served by using SQLAlchemy events directly.


This signal is sent when changed models are committed to the database.

The sender is the application that emitted the changes. The receiver is passed the changes parameter with a list of tuples in the form (model instance, operation).

The operation is one of 'insert', 'update', and 'delete'.


This signal works exactly like models_committed but is emitted before the commit takes place.
