PostgreSQL Database



  • vendor/doctrine/dbal/lib/Doctrine/DBAL/Platforms/PostgreSqlPlatform.php

The function:


only returns one datetime format:

     * {@inheritDoc}
    public function getDateTimeTzFormatString()
        //return 'Y-m-d H:i:sO'; // original format
        return 'Y-m-d H:i:s.uO'; // format also needed

Here is the error I get using the original format:

Could not convert database value "2012-12-07 16:01:52.580789-05" to Doctrine Type datetimetz. Expected format: Y-m-d H:i:s.O

If I use this format: 'Y-m-d H:i:s.uO' it works.

DateTimeTz is created as 'TIMESTAMP(0) WITH TIME ZONE' on DBAL. If you have 'TIMESTAMP(6) WITH TIME ZONE' instead, then you have to create your own datatye.

Why would this be a new data type? I understand how to fix the problem with creating my own data type to handle the formatting issue and would even suggest just overriding the data type with

        Type::overrideType('datetimetz', 'Doctrine\DBAL\Types\VarDateTimeType');
    Type::overrideType('datetime', 'Doctrine\DBAL\Types\VarDateTimeType');

But it's not a new data type, it's a formatting issue.
