            Django "surrogates not allowed" error on call when text includes emoji character
            Asked 2022-Mar-18 at 20:40

            We are currently in the process of building a system that stores text in a PostgreSQL DB via Django. The data gets then extracted via PGSync to ElasticSearch.

            At the moment we have encountered the following issue in a testcase

            Error Message:

            UnicodeEncodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't encode characters in position 159-160: surrogates not allowed

            We identified the character that causes that issue. It is an emoji.

            The text itself is a mixture of Greek Characters, "English Characters" and as it seems emojis. The greek is not shown as greek, but instead in the \u form.

            Relevant Text that causes the issue:

            How i can change _type param in during import data into elasticsearch?
            Asked 2021-Nov-28 at 14:11

            I getting this

            while import with schema.json description from postgres via pgsync

            I want to override the value from _type: _doc to something else. Can you help me?



            Answered 2021-Nov-28 at 14:11

            This is not possible, _type is a metadata field that was used until version 6.X to have different document types in the same index, this is not possible anymore.

            In version 6.X you could have indices with a custom value for _type, but just one per index, on version 7.X the value for the _type field is _doc, and on the upcoming version 8.X this field and its related API won't exist anymore.

            You can however create a new field named type and use any value you want, how you will do this depends on how you are ingesting your data.

            For more information about the removal of types in elasticsearch you can check this official blog post and this part of the documentation.



            How to add (text)fields to all field in pgsync / elasticsearch?
            Asked 2021-Jul-14 at 20:05

            I am exploring pgsync to add elasticsearch support for some tables, however, I would like to be able to copy all the textfields to one "all" field. Elastic has support for this in the form of a mapping to a group field, with copy-to, see here

            Answered 2021-Jul-14 at 20:05

            You can do this in pgsync by creating a transform node with a mapping type. Here is an example of how to achieve this for the book example defined here



            How to get version number and then compare it to minimum

            I am using this answer to compare the min version number that is required. But before i go to comparison, I am actually stuck on how to extract the version number.

            If you're trying to capture a command's output in a variable and it's instead getting printed to the terminal, that's a sign the command isn't writing to its standard output, but to another stream - usually standard error. So just redirect it:



            Looking for a solution to synchronize data between Postgres database running in AWS Aurora DB (pgsync maybe?)
            Asked 2020-Jan-02 at 16:20

            We are trying to find a solution to synchronize the data from one database (let's call it Master) database to another database (let's call it Analytics) to perform ETL operations in Analytics.

            The setup would be as follows:

            • Tables from Master would be replicated in Analytics
            • Replicated tables in Analytics would be read-only in analytics but used in certain ETL scripts (some of them purely SQL) to perform some insertions in other tables in Analytics

            From our initial research it seems PGSync would be a good solution to perform this. We have been trying AWS DMS as well but it created too much of a drag on resources on Master.

            Has anyone attempted a similar setup in the past? Would love to hear your thoughts!



            Answered 2020-Jan-02 at 16:15

            You can create read_replicas in AWS RDS here is some additional info. I think this is what you are searching for - note that for aurora Read replicas can also become master in case of a failure.
