This feature is only enabled if ENABLE_TOOLJET_DB is set to true.

PostgREST Server

PostgREST is a standalone web server that turns your PostgreSQL database directly into queryable RESTful APIs which is utilized for Tooljet Database. This server only communicates with the ToolJet server and therefore does not need to be publicly exposed.


If you have openssl installed, you can run the following command openssl rand -hex 32 to generate the value for PGRST_JWT_SECRET.

If this parameter is not specified, then PostgREST refuses authentication requests.

PGRST_JWT_SECRETJWT token client provided for authentication
PGRST_DB_URIdatabase connection string for tooljet database

Please make sure that DB_URI is given in the format postgres://[USERNAME]:[PASSWORD]@[HOST]:[PORT]/[DATABASE]

  • Export schema from the ToolJet Database to a JSON file.
  • Uniquely identify each record in a table using Primary Keys, ensuring data integrity and enabling efficient querying and indexing.
  • Establish relationships between tables using Foreign Keys, allowing you to create associations based on the Primary Key of one table and maintain referential integrity.
