How to create new schema for an App Platform dev database?

App Platform database user ‘db’ doesn’t seem to have permissions to create schemas. Is there a way I could grant this user the necessary permissions or connect as a different user?

Hi there,

I believe that this is not possible with the dev databases.

To be able to do this, I would recommend going with a Managed Database.

You ca also upgrade an existing dev database to a managed one by following the steps here:

Hope that thit helps!

Best,

Bobby
