PostgreSQL

Configuration details for the Postgres integration.

Via the Postgres destination, Hightouch can create and update rows in a Postgres table.

Unique Identifiers

Hightouch requires a unique identifier in the destination Postgres table in order to add, remove, and update rows. The column must be either a UNIQUE or PRIMARY KEY column. At least one Hightouch field must map to a unique column.

If you're unsure whether your mapping includes a compatible column, just try it! Hightouch will error if you need to change your mappings.

Column Types

Hightouch works out of the box with all standard column types, including:

  • BIGINT

  • INT

  • TEXT

  • VARCHAR

  • TIMESTAMPTZ

  • BOOLEAN

  • DECIMAL

If you see type errors, it may be because your SQL query is producing the wrong format. Message us on Intercom if you need help!

Required Permissions

Your Postgres credentials must be able to:

  • Add/update/delete rows from the destination table.

  • View the INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS,

    INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLE_CONSTRAINTS, and

    INFORMATION_SCHEMA.CONSTRAINT_COLUMN_USAGE tables. This is used for

    gathering metadata needed for the sync.

Compatible Versions

The minimum supported Postgres version is 9.5 (Hightouch relies on ON CONFLICT for updating rows).
