Working with Postgres Extensions in Azure Cosmos DB

Sarah Dutkiewicz runs into an issue:

Problem: I installed PostGIS on my single-node cluster without issues. However, I scaled my cluster to 2 nodes afterwards. When I ran the query that uses ST_X and ST_Y from PostGIS, I got the following error:

ERROR: type "public.geometry" does not exist
CONTEXT: while executing command on

When I read the CONTEXT message, I realized by the w# reference that the worker nodes didn’t have PostGIS installed. When you scale the nodes – at least in this case, it doesn’t enable the extensions over there.

Read on to see how Sarah was able to resolve this issue.
