PostgreSQL specific model indexes

New in Django 1.11.

The following are PostgreSQL specific indexes available from the django.contrib.postgres.indexes module.


class BrinIndex(fields=[], name=None, pages_per_range=None)[source]

Creates a BRIN index.

The pages_per_range argument takes a positive integer.


class GinIndex[source]

Creates a gin index.

To use this index on data types not in the built-in operator classes, you need to activate the btree_gin extension on PostgreSQL. You can install it using the BtreeGinExtension migration operation.
