edit/delete without unique/primary keys, OIDs

  • Anonymous - 2002-06-07

    The FAQ states that phpPgAdmin requires a table to have a unique or primary key to allow edit/delete buttons when using browse or select functionality.

    What about postgresql's feature of internal unique row ids named OIDs, see http://www.de.postgresql.org/docs/faq-english.html#4.16

    IMO it should be possible to rewrite phppgadmin to enable edit/delete of tables without a unique/primary key by using OIDs.

      The reason OIDs were not used is because the future use of OIDs are in question.  PgSQL 7.2 already has the ability to not have OIDs as a user/admin defined setting, and OIDs are not guaranteed in future versions.
