A utility for creating postgres enums for an Ash enum type.

In your migration, you can say:

def up() do
  AshPostgres.Migration.create_enum(MyEnumType)
end

Attribution:

This code and example was copied from ecto_enum. I didn't use the library itself because it has a lot that would not currently be relevant for Ash. https://github.com/gjaldon/ecto_enum

Must be done manually, as the migration generator will not do it. Additionally, altering the type must be done in its own, separate migration, which must have @disable_ddl_transaction true, as you cannot do this operation in a transaction.

For example:

defmodule MyApp.Repo.Migrations.AddToGenderEnum do
  use Ecto.Migration
  @disable_ddl_transaction true

  def up do
    Ecto.Migration.execute "ALTER TYPE gender ADD VALUE IF NOT EXISTS 'other'"
  end

  def down do
    ...
  end
end

Keep in mind, that if you want to create a custom enum type, you will want to add

def storage_type, do: :my_type_name
