How do I add a Postgres extension to my database?


You want to install an extension in your Heroku Postgres database.


Check the list of supported PostgreSQL extensions in Heroku Postgres in our DevCenter article "Extensions, PostGIS, and Full Text Search Dictionaries on Heroku Postgres".

You can install any of the supported extensions using CREATE EXTENSION.

It's not possible to install or use extensions that are not part of the supported extensions at the moment.
