Third-Party Tools Supported by Cockroach Labs

CockroachDB's support of the PostgreSQL wire protocol makes most PostgreSQL drivers, ORM frameworks, and other types of third-party database tools designed for PostgreSQL compatible with CockroachDB. Cockroach Labs guarantees official support for a set of popular PostgreSQL tools, which we list on this page.

Support levels

Cockroach Labs has partnered with open-source projects, vendors, and individuals to offer the following levels of support with third-party tools:

  • Full support indicates that Cockroach Labs is committed to maintaining compatibility with the vast majority of the tool's features. CockroachDB is regularly tested against the latest version documented in the table below.
  • Beta support indicates that Cockroach Labs is working towards full support for the tool. The primary features of the tool are compatible with CockroachDB (e.g., connecting and basic database operations), but full integration may require additional steps, lack support for all features, or exhibit unexpected behavior.
Note:

Unless explicitly stated, support for a driver or data access framework does not include automatic, client-side transaction retry handling. For client-side transaction retry handling samples, see Example Apps.

If you encounter problems using CockroachDB with any of the tools listed on this page, please open an issue with details to help us make progress toward better support.

For a list of tools supported by the CockroachDB community, see Third-Party Tools Supported by the Community.
