DB Designer developers team is proud to announce the completion of PostgreSQL support.

Since 2012, we have been working hard to address challenges with database DevOps and making it easier and more fun for our users. Our modeling tool has supported forward engineering for MySQL, PostgreSQL, MS SQL, Oracle and SQLite since 2014 but until now our reverse engineering support has been limited to MySQL only.

Our users requested us to prioritize adding reverse engineering (Import) support for PostgreSQL. We are happy to announce that we have completed this.

In addition to MySQL, users can now import PostgreSQL script and reverse engineer their schemas in DB Designer’s visual database design tool. All this can be done online and in collaboration with other team members. To get started please follow the steps below:

Step 1 – Please open our online schema designer.

DB Designer Main Menu

Step 2 – In main menu click on Schema > Import.

Step 3 – On the import window, select either MySQL or PostgreSQL and paste your script to let DB Designer do it’s job.

We are also actively working on completing reverse engineering (Import) for Oracle, MS SQL and SQLite and expect to have these released in the next few weeks.

Please note: We already support forward engineering (export) for MySQL, PostgreSQL, MS SQL, Oracle and SQLite.

Additionally, we have fixed all the outstanding bugs and issues related to forward engineering of PostgreSQL.

Our support and development team is on stand by to assist users with any issues and we will continue further testing of PostgreSQL. We encourage you to test PostgreSQL and let us know what you think about it. If you encounter any bugs or have any questions and need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact our support team by emailing us at [email protected] and one of our team members will get back to you right away.

We are actively working on more upgrades and new features. Please feel free to send us any feature requests at [email protected]

Our entire team at DB Designer would like to thank you all for your continued support and help in making DB Designer better. We look forward to continue serving you. Thank you
