Json Support

New in version 16.05.

Deepgreen DB includes json type ported from Postgres 9.3. See the postgres documentation for details.

Note that the following functions are not supported at this time: json_each, json_each_text, json_extract_path, json_extract_path_text, json_object_keys, json_populate_record, json_populate_recordset, json_array_elements, and json_agg.

Installation

To install the json extension, perform the following commands on your Deepgreen DB host:

% source deepgreendb/greenplum_path.sh
% psql your-database -f $GPHOME/share/postgresql/contrib/json.sql
