While doing some research for a question, I realized that RULE is a PostgreSQL extension and not part of the SQL standard.

However there doesn't appear to be a tag for RULES on this site, there are a number on Stack Overflow but rules for example, has the following description:

This tag is very broad, try being more specific by using tags relevant to your problem. Examples are "rule-engine" for rules engines, "url-rewriting"/"mod-rewrite" for rewrite rules or "form-validation" for validation rules. See the full wiki article for a more complete list.

Can we have a postgresql-rule tag for questions about RULES, or this overly specific?

I doubt we have that many questions on it, but I don't see what damage that tag does. Normally you should be using triggers instead. If you want to add that tag, I say go for it. I don't think it applies to the question of yours that I just answered though.

  • Thanks. I posted this question because I don't have enough rep on this site to create a new tag
