View Source Postgres Expressions

In addition to the expressions listed in the Ash expressions guide, AshPostgres provides the following expressions


fragment allows you to embed raw sql into the query. Use question marks to interpolate values from the outer expression.

For example:

Ash.Query.filter(User, fragment("? IS NOT NULL", first_name))

Like and ILike

These wrap the postgres builtin like and ilike operators.

Please be aware, these match patterns not raw text. Use contains/1 if you want to match text without supporting patterns, i.e % and _ have semantic meaning!

For example:

Ash.Query.filter(User, like(name, "%obo%")) # name contains obo anywhere in the string, case sensitively
Ash.Query.filter(User, ilike(name, "%ObO%")) # name contains ObO anywhere in the string, case insensitively

Trigram similarity

To use this expression, you must have the pg_trgm extension in your repos installed_extensions list.

This calls the similarity function from that extension. See more

For example:

Ash.Query.filter(User, trigram_similarity(first_name, "fred") > 0.8)
