I want to set a boolean on every entry in a table matching an array of row ids passed into a stored procedure. Help me crack the proper syntax to accomplish this? The following is as close as I’ve gotten.
CREATE PROCEDURE tester (id_list bigint) AS $$ UPDATE some_table SET touched = true WHERE id IN (unnest(id_list)); $$ LANGUAGE sql; CALL tester(ARRAY[12, 34]);
Below are the methods you can try. The first solution is probably the best. Try others if the first one doesn’t work. Senior developers aren’t just copying/pasting – they read the methods carefully & apply them wisely to each case.
UPDATE some_table SET touched = true WHERE id = ANY (id_list);
a_horse_with_no_name’s ANY answer is tidier, but I also found out adding a SELECT in front of the unnest function also works:
CREATE PROCEDURE tester (id_list bigint) AS $$ UPDATE some_table SET touched = true WHERE id IN (SELECT unnest(id_list)); $$ LANGUAGE sql;
