Hi Dimitri.

I'm migrating MySQL 5.6 partitions (CREATE PARTITION) to Postgresql 10.1, and pgloader is not automatically creating the partitions in PG using a recent version of pgloader. Should it work?

Thanks, James.

Hi James,

It should not work as in “there's no code anywhere in pgloader that knows about partitions in either MySQL or PostgreSQL”. It should work as in “let's implement that missing code”. So I'm adding the label “Wish List” to that issue, and I ask people who need that feature to consider (crowd?) funding it, by having their company buying a pgloader Moral License (see

You're using pgloader in order to complete your job, paid by a company, right? Either have them pay you to contribute the feature (yes please) or buy a licence to the same effect, so that I can spend my time on your needs ;-)

I have updated to add Native Partitioning Support in PostgreSQL 10, and also reviewed the contributing options so that it's now a monthly based subscription that you can cancel anytime you want, aiming to make it easier for interested patrons. Quarterly, Bi-Yearly and Yearly pre-paid subscriptions are an option too. Also I'm offering more Custom services for Patrons, consider reading to know more.
