Postgres DB


MOSIP uses Postgres DB for all relational data storage. The DB creation SQL scripts are located under /db_scripts the folder of the module repository. In sandbox deployment, Postgres is installed as a docker inside the cluster. However, in production deployment, typically, Postgres will be installed external to the cluster.

ER diagrams

Entity relationships diagrams for all databases used in MOSIP are given below.
