  • insert into tmp.xxx_list select x.id, x.circuit_id, uuid_generate_v1(), uuid_generate_v1() from circuit_ma x left join tmp.xxx_list y on x.id = y.panel_id and x.circuit_id = y.circuit_id where y.panel_id is null;

  • I did not write the schema name of uuid_generate_v1(), because it is under schema public, and schema public is in the search_path .

Apparently, the CREATE FUNCTION statement used a wrong search path. (This is not shown by \df.)

You can either tell the function to use the value in the environment, or set it explicitly to a correct value:

ALTER FUNCTION da.test_get RESET search_path;
ALTER FUNCTION da.test_get SET search_path = da, public;
  • Great idea, i will have a try. Actually this error in the system can not be replay every time. It happens by chance.

I faced similar problem and literally nothing worked for me... So I executed this in my custom schema as a workaround:

create function uuid_generate_v1() returns uuid
    parallel safe
    language plpgsql
    RETURN public.uuid_generate_v1();

Now you are free to use this function just normally in your schema with no need to use public. prefix:

SELECT uuid_generate_v1()
