How to pass in transaction object to be use in custom validation/model validation? hooks can access it via options object

sequelize.define('Model', {
  username: {
    type: DataType.STRING,
    validate: {
      customValidation: function(value) {
        // how to get transaction object here?
        // someQuery
}, {
hooks: {
  beforeCreate: function(instance, options, fn) {
    // here we got options.transaction <== like this

Hmm, I honestly don't think you should be able to access options in the validator for a single attribute. If you need to do any validations that are more involved I'd recommend before/afterValidate hooks

I don't think running an additional query in a validator is involved.
