Transactions are protective blocks where SQL statements are only permanent if they can all succeed as one atomic action. Phalcon\Transaction is intended to be used with Phalcon_Model_Base. Phalcon Transactions should be created using Phalcon\Transaction\Manager.

try {

  $manager = new \Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Transaction\Manager();

  $transaction = $manager->get();

  $robot = new Robots();
  $robot->name = 'WALL·E';
  $robot->created_at = date('Y-m-d');
  if ($robot->save() == false) {
    $transaction->rollback("Can't save robot");

  $robotPart = new RobotParts();
  $robotPart->type = 'head';
  if ($robotPart->save() == false) {
    $transaction->rollback("Can't save robot part");


} catch(Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Transaction\Failed $e) {
  echo 'Failed, reason: ', $e->getMessage();
