I recently upgraded the database from PostgreSQL v9.6 to v11.7. we have some partitioned table with
inherence and planning to migrate them to the
CREATE TABLE c_account_p
billing_account_guid character varying(40) NOT NULL,
ingestion_process_id bigint NOT NULL DEFAULT '-1'::integer,
load_dttm timestamp(6) without time zone NOT NULL,
ban integer NOT NULL,
CONSTRAINT billing_account_pkey PRIMARY KEY (billing_account_guid, ban)
) PARTITION by RANGE(load_dttm);
When I try the create table, it's throwing below error:
ERROR: insufficient columns in the PRIMARY KEY constraint definition
DETAIL: PRIMARY KEY constraint on table "l_billing_account_p" lacks column "load_dttm" which is part of the partition key.
SQL state: 0A000
Is it mandatory/necessary that the
partition column should be a primary key? cause if I include
PK then its working fine.db<>fiddle
partition column should be supposed to be a
PK, it's challenging to create a partition by range with the date column, cause the
load_dttm column chances to have duplicate if data loaded
INSERT INTO c_account_p SELECT * from c_account_p_bkp ON CONFLICT (billing_account_guid,ban,load_dttm) DO UPDATE SET 'some stuff..'
If I receive billing_account_guid, ban combination with different load_dttm then it will end up with duplicate keys.
Could some please help me to understand this scenario?
