- pg_start_sql 0.0.2
- runs SQL statement at instance start
PostgreSQL extension to execute SQL statements at instance start.
This module can be built using the standard PGXS infrastructure. For this to work, the pg_config program must be available in your $PATH:
git clone https://github.com/pierreforstmann/pg_start_sql.git
Extension must be loaded:
At server level with
shared_preload_libraries = 'pg_start_sql'
And following SQL statement should be run:
create extension pg_start_sql;
This extension is installed at instance level: it does not need to be installed in each database.
pg_start_sql has been successfully tested with PostgreSQL 9.5, 9.6, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15.
pg_start_sql has 3 GUC parameters:
pg_start_sql.dbname which is the database name where SQL statements must be run. This parameter is not mandatory : if not specified SQL statement is run in postgres database.
pg_start_sql.stmt which is the SQL statement to be run.
pg_start_sql.file which is a file name whose SQL statements are to be run.
At least one of the parameters
pg_start_sql.file must be specified.
Statements are run with superuser privileges. There is no way to specify another database user to run SQL statements.
