PostgreSQL Extensions

PostgreSQL supports many different extensions, such as PostGIS or TimescaleDB. These extensions can be used in PostgreSQL by VSHN as well. For a list of all available extensions please consult this page.

Enable PostgreSQL Extensions

To enable an extension, add the following configuration to your instance:

kind: VSHNPostgreSQL
  name: pgsql-app1-prod
        - name: ltree (1)
1 Name of the extension as found on the "Name" column at the official listing. Add more extensions to the list as needed. After applying the change, AppCat will ensure that the extension is available after a short while.
Some extension like timescaldb or postgis will require a restart of the instance to be available. Depending on your Instance Update Strategy, it’s possible that the instance will restart immediately.
