Hey <!everyone> โœŒ๏ธ prisma cool We just released Prisma
prisma rainbow ๐Ÿฆฆ CockroachDB connector is now Generally Available! We are proud to announce that the CockroachDB connector is now stable and Generally Available. If youโ€™re upgrading from Prisma version `3.9.0`+ or the PostgreSQL connector, you can now run
npx prisma db pull
and review the changes to your schema. To learn more about CockroachDB-specific native types we support, refer to our docs. To learn more about the connector and how it differs from PostgreSQL, head to our documentation. โšก*๏ธ PostgreSQL
, and
indexes support (Preview)* This release has expanded index type support with the GIN, GiST, SP-GiST, and BRIN indexes. To make use of an index type, you can update your Prisma schema by providing the
argument to the
Copy code
datasource db {
  provider = "postgresql"
  url      = env("DATABASE_URL")

generator client {
  provider        = "prisma-client-js"
  previewFeatures = ["extendedIndexes"]

model Post {
  id      Int     @id
  title   String
  content String?
  tags    Json?
  @@index([tags], type: Gin)
The following SQL will be generated in your migration when you run `prisma migrate dev`:
Copy code
    "title" TEXT NOT NULL,
    "content" TEXT,
    "tags" JSONB,
    CONSTRAINT "Post_pkey" PRIMARY KEY ("id")

CREATE INDEX "Post_tags_idx" ON "Post" USING GIN ("tags");
To learn more about configuring index types in your schema, refer to our documentation. ๐Ÿช„ Improved
In this release, we made improvements to the SQL raw API. Some improvements are breaking and will be available behind the new
Preview feature flag.
Copy code
generator client {
  provider        = "prisma-client-js"
  previewFeatures = ["improvedQueryRaw"]
Preview feature solves most of the issues faced when working with the raw API. We would encourage you to turn on the Preview feature flag, try out the new API, and let us know how we can make it even better. Here are some of the improvements we made to `queryRaw`: 1. Raw scalar values are deserialized as their correct JavaScript types Prisma Client queries such as
deserialize database scalar values to their corresponding JavaScript types. For example, a
value is deserialized as a JavaScript
and a
would be deserialized as a JavaScript
. Raw queries now implement the same behavior when the
Preview feature flag is enabled. The types of values from the database will be used instead of the types in the Prisma schema. 2. PostgreSQL type-casts Weโ€™ve also fixed a lot of PostgreSQL type-casts that were broken by enabling the
Preview feature flag. A consequence of this fix is that some subtle implicit casts are now handled more strictly and would fail. 3. Query parameters are correctly sent to the database Before this release, query parameters of type
, and
were incorrectly sent to the database leading to instances of unexpected inserts. Passing the types as query parameters now works:
Copy code
await prisma.$executeRaw`INSERT INTO "Table" ("bigint", "bytes", "decimal") VALUES (${BigInt("123")}, ${Buffer.from([1, 2, 3])}, ${Decimal("12.23")});`
This improvement is available without the
Preview feature flag.
