    Type: Boolean. A Boolean that specifies whether to retrieve all attributes of a record.



You should avoid retrieving all columns in a query result because of the impact on a subsequent update of records. In an update, this will set all field values, even if they are unchanged, and often triggers cascaded updates to child records.
