HV024 error code in PostgreSQL is related to foreign data wrappers (FDWs), and it indicates an
fdw_invalid_attribute_value condition. This error typically means that an attribute or a column value in a foreign table does not comply with the expected format defined by the foreign data wrapper.
To diagnose and fix the
HV024 fdw_invalid_attribute_value error, you need to look into the foreign table definitions and the data being queried or manipulated. Here are some examples and sample code to guide you through understanding and resolving this issue:
Example 1: Incorrect Data Type
If the foreign table expects a certain data type and receives a value of a different type, you might encounter the
Check the foreign table’s column definitions against the values you are inserting or querying. Ensure that the data types match.
Adjust the data type of the column in the foreign table or cast the value to the correct data type before insertion or querying.
-- Assuming the foreign table expects a column to be an integer
-- Cast the value to integer before insertion
INSERT INTO foreign_table (integer_column) VALUES (CAST('123' AS integer));
Example 2: Invalid Enum Value
If a foreign table column is of an enum type, providing a value not present in the enum list will cause an
Verify that the value being inserted or used in a query is a valid member of the enum type.
Ensure you are using valid enum values. If necessary, update the enum type to include new values.
-- Assuming the foreign table has an enum type with allowed values 'A', 'B', 'C'
-- Make sure to use one of the valid enum values
INSERT INTO foreign_table (enum_column) VALUES ('A');
Example 3: Constraint Violation
Constraints on a foreign table might lead to an
HV024 error if a value does not meet the constraint requirements.
Review any constraints on the foreign table columns, such as check constraints, and compare them with the data being inserted or queried.
Modify the data to satisfy the constraints or alter the constraints to accommodate the new data.
-- Assuming the foreign table has a check constraint for a positive integer
-- Ensure the value complies with the constraint
INSERT INTO foreign_table (positive_integer_column) VALUES (10);
Example 4: Data Format Mismatch
When the foreign data wrapper expects data in a specific format (such as date or timestamp), and the provided value is in an incompatible format, this can trigger the
Check the expected data format for the column in the foreign table and the format of the provided value.
Format the data correctly before insertion or querying.
-- Assuming the foreign table expects a date in 'YYYY-MM-DD' format
-- Format the date value accordingly
INSERT INTO foreign_table (date_column) VALUES (TO_DATE('2024-01-31', 'YYYY-MM-DD'));
When dealing with foreign data wrappers, it’s essential to understand the requirements of the foreign data source and ensure that your queries and data manipulations align with those requirements. Consult the documentation of the specific foreign data wrapper you are using for more information on the expected data formats and constraints. If the error persists, reviewing the PostgreSQL documentation for FDW-related error codes can provide additional guidance.
