I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Do something when Heroku app's DATABASE_URL changes

    If you promote a database in Heroku:
    https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/heroku-postgresql#specifying-and-promoting-databases

    Then the database URL in DbInsights is not automatically updated, nor are you notified that a change has happened. You can manually set the new DB URL in settings no trouble, but that requires you to realize what's happened.

    In my case a collegue performed a required fast changeover, which resulted in out DbInsights data going stale.

    If you can get this from Heroku, if might be nice to check it and throw up a flash if they don't match.

      Thank you for your suggestion.
      The only way DbInsights could know that the DATABASE_URL is not in sync anymore would be by requiring the user to provide her Heroku account API key (in order to be able to go check the application’s configuration variables).
      However the Heroku account API key also gives a lot more permissions and since this is not strictly necessary for DbInsights, I think that would be too intrusive.

    • Reference Data - source from DB

      Ability for reference data to load from the database of known relationships.

      For example Product belongs to Manufacturer
      An order had many products

      A graph on sales (orders table) by manufacturer.
      A graph on sales (orders table) by product 5 best sellers this week

      I don't want to type in n + reference data entries for products or manf.

      I would like the tool to pull in for a given known relationship, the associated data (name)
