Postgresql pg_enum Table Expalanations


  • The pg_enum catalog contains entries showing the values and labels for each enum type. The internal representation of a given enum value is actually the OID of its associated row in pg_enum.

pg_enum Columns:
Name
Type
References
Description
oid
oid
Row identifier (hidden attribute; must be explicitly selected)
enumtypid
oid
pg_type.oid
The OID of the pg_type entry owning this enum value
enumsortorder
float4
The sort position of this enum value within its enum type
enumlabel
name
The textual label for this enum value

  • The OIDs for pg_enum rows follow a special rule: even-numbered OIDs are guaranteed to be ordered in the same way as the sort ordering of their enum type. That is, if two even OIDs belong to the same enum type, the smaller OID must have the smaller enumsortorder value. Odd-numbered OID values need bear no relationship to the sort order. This rule allows the enum comparison routines to avoid catalog lookups in many common cases. The routines that create and alter enum types attempt to assign even OIDs to enum values whenever possible.
  • When an enum type is created, its members are assigned sort-order positions 1..n. But members added later might be given negative or fractional values of enumsortorder. The only requirement on these values is that they be correctly ordered and unique within each enum type.
