Extension support notes

  • Neon supports the uuid-ossp extension for generating UUIDs rather than the uuid extension.
  • The sslinfo extension is not supported, as Neon handles connections via a proxy that checks SSL.
  • The pg_cron extension is not supported. Neon scales to zero when it is not being used, which means that a scheduler that runs inside the database cannot be implemented. Consider using an scheduler that runs externally instead.
  • The file_fdw extension is not supported. Files would not remain accessible when Neon scales to zero.
