Custom table in the Strapi database


I’m just wondering if it’s considered safe to extend Strapi’s database. I’m considering adding a whole new, separate database table in my Strapi psql db. Would I put my Strapi service at risk by doing this (even though I won’t touch the pre-existing Strapi db?


It’s not safe.
As Strapi does a sanity check each time it starts, tables that are not references will either be created or dropped.

Alright, I’ll spin up a parallell, separate psql db in that case. Thanks a lot for the quick reply!
