Bug report #11348

Updated by Giovanni Manghi about 2 years ago

Add PostGIS layers is too slow. The reason is that when connecting to the database, every table and view is read along with all the details. This is not necessary. Instead QGIS should first identify the Schemas that are present within the database, as this is the first screen displayed to the user. Tables and Views should only be read if the Schema is selected, but only the name of the table or view. When the table or view is selected, then the additional information should be read.

This is being reported as a bug rather than a feature request, as it is a usability issue.
