DB Manager: add and edit table: several issues with data types

Added by Paolo Cavallini almost 7 years ago. Updated over 4 years ago.

Category:DB Manager
Affected QGIS version:3.0.0 Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:23791


In create table:
  • field types are limited; in particular, timestamptz is missing
  • SRID has to be entered by hand; the projection widget should be added
In edit table:
  • Table properties -> Field properties: the field `Length` appears wrong; for geom it shows `geomtype,srid`, for varchar(255) and others, adding a length will cause an error:
    ALTER TABLE "public"."buffer_union" ALTER "round" TYPE varchar(255) (24)
    length has to be entered by hand changing varchar(255) into e.g. varchar(20)

In general, the interface should be cleaned up.
