Question

Enable custom extension for PostgreSQL

My application functionality relays on custom postgres extension pg_similarity, while I was testing out GCP they were providing support for this extension and I enabled it just as usual with CREATE EXTENSION pg_similarity; but in DO managed db does not provide support for this extension. Is there a way I can install it manually? And if not, what would be the workaround for this?

Hi @arthurmorel,

You can check the support extensions of the Managed Database PostgreSQL service here:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/databases/postgresql/details/supported-extensions/

if the extension is not a part of this list, you can suggest it as an idea to be added here:

Hope that helps! - KFSys.
