How do I downgrade a Heroku Postgres add-on plan?


I want to downgrade to a smaller Heroku Postgres plan.


The procedure for downgrading Heroku Postgres plans is much the same as the one for upgrading, as described here: The only difference is that the new plan is of the smaller type.

Please note that downgrading a plan may result in fewer Postgres connections being available to the app. Also the memory limits are significant as they often have a direct impact on the performance of queries. You can find more about choosing the right plan for your application here:
