CockroachDB Backend for Boundary

Hi all,

Is it possible to use CockroachDB as the backend for Boundary. CockroachDB documentation notes “CockroachDB is wire-compatible with PostgreSQL 13” and Boundary documentation notes “Boundary has only been tested on Postgres 11 or greater.”


At the moment it isn’t because Cockroach lacks triggers. Once triggers (and accompanying functions) have been added, which is on their roadmap afaik, it should be compatible.

Please feel free to upvote triggers for CRDB: sql: Add support for triggers in CockroachDB · Issue #28296 · cockroachdb/cockroach · GitHub

Thanks both for the feedback. I’ve added my upvote :slight_smile:
