Ecto v3.1.1 Ecto.Schema.Metadata View Source

Stores metadata of a struct.

State

The state of the schema is stored in the :state field and allows following values:

  • :built - the struct was constructed in memory and is not persisted to database yet;
  • :loaded - the struct was loaded from database and represents persisted data;
  • :deleted - the struct was deleted and no longer represents persisted data.

Source

The :source tracks the (table or collection) where the struct is or should be persisted to.

Prefix

Tracks the source prefix in the data storage.

Context

The :context field represents additional state some databases require for proper updates of data. It is not used by the built-in adapters of Ecto.Adapters.Postres and Ecto.Adapters.MySQL.

Schema

The :schema field refers the module name for the schema this metadata belongs to.
