""" What I want to find in the end is something which tells me "this row causes the error". Unfortunately, as the new row of the table with the constraint is not yet on disk, it doesn't really have its own ctid, and therefore I cannot report that. (Which makes sense, obviously.) """
Would an error with the row's PK value be useful? Something like "row with primary key 'pk_val' fails check 'foo_check'". That would be limited in size, yet give some context. There are two problems I can see: - The PK value doesn't necessarily identify the row in any useful manner (SERIAL primary key in INSERT). - The table might lack PK constraint (skip the detail in this case?) - Anssi -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
