Recently I have been working with PostgreSQL 8.3 and uuid data type. When I have a table with uuid data type as primary key, qgis can't show or manipulate it.


#1 Updated by Mike Taves over 15 years ago

A suggested workaround for this is to:
1. drop the primary key constraint
1. add a unique key constraint on the uuid column (former pkey)
1. add a serial column (this could be on the far right-side .. doesn't matter)
1. create a primary key on the newly created serial column

FYI, very few GIS programs allow a non-integer primary key.
