PostgreSQL : "Tools/Execute script" on a database => executed on the wrong database

See original GitHub issue

System information:

  • Operating system (distribution) and version : Windows 10
  • DBeaver version : 6.3.3
  • Additional extensions : none

Connection specification:

  • Database name and version : PostgreSQL
  • Driver name : PostgreSQL JDBC Driver
  • Do you use tunnels or proxies (SSH, SOCKS, etc)? No

Describe the problem you’re observing:

Since upgrading to DBeaver 6.3.2 and 6.3.3, scripts are not executed on the selected database, but on another database. I have several databases on the same PostgreSQL server, and I want to execute a script on each of the databases :

  • Right click on the initial database (database_dev), and select Tools/execute script : window open, OK
  • Select the script and run it : script run, OK
  • Right click on another database (database_prod), and select Tools/execute script : window open, OK
  • Select the script and run it : script run on the other database, and the log is incoherent :
C:\Users\nvervell\AppData\Roaming\DBeaverData\drivers\clients\postgresql\win\psql.exe --port=5432 --username=user@my-host-postgresql --echo-errors database_dev
Task 'PostgreSQL script' started at Tue Jan 21 12:32:02 CET 2020
Task 'PostgreSQL script' finished at Tue Jan 21 12:32:08 CET 2020
2020-01-21 12:32:09.047 - Initiate connection to PostgreSQL database [] for Main <database_prod>
2020-01-21 12:32:09.614 - Initiate connection to PostgreSQL database [] for Metadata <database_prod>

As you can see, at the beginning of the log the command ends with “database_dev” (while I selected “database_prod” as the target), but at the end of the log it says “database_prod”.

It was working properly before the upgrade (I was using DBeaver 6.2.x), and I changed nothing in the configuration. I tried to create a separate connection for each database, rather than using the same connection, but nothing changed.

Steps to reproduce, if exist:

Include any warning/errors/backtraces from the logs

I had a similar problem. Likely related to #7693 - the DB you think is active is not the one that is actually active.

With previous versions, it wasn’t depending on the active DB : using the contextual menu (Tools / Execute script) on a DB would run the script on this DB, whether or not it’s the active DB.
