I was thinking about migrating our Foreman instance to some cloud provider to decouple it from the infrastructure it is managing. Also, this would reduce the time and skills needed to maintain the database itself.
But as I’ve just noticed, Katello 3.16 introduced a custom Postgres extension
evr which makes all managed databases from common cloud providers (Azure DB for Postgres, AWS RDS, Google CloudSQL for Postgres, …) basically unusable as they do not allow the installation of custom extensions.
What are the plans regarding custom extensions for the future? As far as I understand, the
evr extension currently only ships custom types and functions which could be created on the database manually.
Does one of you have any idea on how the extension could be enabled/installed anyway?
