Sequelize binary ids

Expected behavior

I expect that the ID columns should be properly identified and when I click on a row I can view the data for that row.

Actual behavior

The binary ID isn’t handled correctly and I’m not able to view the rows in my tables.

Hello @jordanschoen,

It seems that binary ids are not supported correctly by Forest Admin. I created an issue on our side to investigate on this problem.

Our binary uuid implementation is based on this library sequelize-binary-uuid which uses the library binary-uuid. hope this helps

Hello @jordanschoen,

Can you please share how you defined the BYTEA field in your models?


Hi @jordanschoen,

Just to keep you updated.
After deep investigations, considering the amount of work it would cost us, we decided not to support such field configuration in the short term.
