When using the PostgreSQL app driver, first configure your PostgreSQL connection credentials using environment variables:

This database supports database connection pooling.

Once you have configured your PostgreSQL database credentials, you should create a table with the following structure:

    id varchar(255) PRIMARY KEY,
    "key" varchar(255) NOT NULL,
    secret varchar(255) NOT NULL,
    max_connections integer NOT NULL,
    enable_client_messages smallint NOT NULL,
    "enabled" smallint NOT NULL,
    max_backend_events_per_sec integer NOT NULL,
    max_client_events_per_sec integer NOT NULL,
    max_read_req_per_sec integer NOT NULL,
    webhooks json

Environment Variables

The following environment variables are used to define the behavior of the PostgreSQL app driver:

Limits on an app-by-app basis

This feature is truly optional. To enforce app-level limits in PostgreSQL, you should add the following fields to your table:

max_presence_members_per_channel integer DEFAULT NULL,
max_presence_member_size_in_kb integer DEFAULT NULL,
max_channel_name_length integer DEFAULT NULL,
max_event_channels_at_once integer DEFAULT NULL,
max_event_name_length integer DEFAULT NULL,
max_event_payload_in_kb integer DEFAULT NULL,
max_event_batch_size integer DEFAULT NULL

Setting any of them to null or '' will ignore the setting, and use the limits associated with the server-level declared defaults.

Existing apps running on <0.29.0 will still work even if you don't have these fields added after the migration to 0.29.0. You should add these fields to keep your database up-to-date or to have the choice to, later on, imply limits to your apps.
