Elastic search triggers not dropped properly

At the moment we use DB triggers for elastic search updates, but we're looking into a better alternative. While we're working on it, some people might have this problem.

PROBLEM

DB postgres. Having elastic search set up on the site. While running cron, we have an error that looks like this: -5: ERROR: trigger "search_elasticsearch_interaction_forum_post" for relation "interaction_forum_post" already exists] in EXECUTE("CREATE TRIGGER "search_elasticsearch_interaction_forum_post" BEFORE INSERT OR UPDATE OR DELETE ON "interaction_forum_post"

This means the cron got stuck while trying to drop/re-create the triggers.

SOLUTION

We need to manually remove the trigger that was not dropped. And also check if we need to delete the record in pg_depend table.

  1. search for the trigger name in pg_trigger table
select oid,tgname,tgfoid from pg_trigger where tgname ='search_elasticsearch_interaction_forum_post';
  1. with that result, if there's a record in pg_depend where pg_depend.refobjid=pg_trigger.tgfoid and pg_depend.objid=pg_trigger.oid, then delete it
  2. delete the trigger with name 'search_elasticsearch_interaction_forum_post'
This is how the tables should look like when everything's ok:
select oid,tgname,tgfoid from pg_trigger where tgname like '%elastic%';
  oid    |                   tgname                    |  tgfoid
