Database

Postgres Extensions Overview

Extensions are exactly as they sound - they "extend" the database with functionality which isn't part of the Postgres core. Supabase has pre-installed some of the most useful open source extensions.

Enable and disable extensions

  1. Go to the Database page in the Dashboard.
  2. Click Extensions in the sidebar.
  3. Enable or disable an extension.

Upgrade Extensions

If a new version of an extension becomes available on Supabase, you need to initiate a software upgrade in the Infrastructure Settings to access it. Software upgrades can also be initiated by restarting your server in the General Settings.

Full list of extensions

Supabase is pre-configured with over 50 extensions. You can also install your own SQL extensions directly in the database through our SQL editor.
