(TIL) PSQL: List Various Kinds Of Objects

less than 1 minute read

Our PostgreSQL database can end up with all kinds of objects: tables, sequences, views, etc. We can use a variety of psql meta-commands to list the different types of (user-created) objects in our database.

  • \dt will list all the tables
  • \dE will list all the foreign tables
  • \di will list all the indexes
  • \ds will list all the sequences
  • \dv will list all the views
  • \dm will list all the materialized views

These can also be combined. For instance, to see all the tables and sequences, we can run \dts.
