NAME

DBIx::Class::Helper::Schema::LintContents - suite of methods to find violated "constraints"

SYNOPSIS

 package MyApp::Schema;
 use parent 'DBIx::Class::Schema';
 __PACKAGE__->load_components('Helper::Schema::LintContents');
 1;
And later, somewhere else:
 say "Incorrectly Null Users:";
 for ($schema->null_check_source_auto('User')->all) {
    say '* ' . $_->id
 }
 say "Duplicate Users:";
 my $duplicates = $schema->dup_check_source_auto('User');
 for (keys %$duplicates) {
    say "Constraint: $_";
    for ($duplicates->{$_}->all) {
       say '* ' . $_->id
    }
 }
 say "Users with invalid FK's:";
 my $invalid_fks = $schema->fk_check_source_auto('User');
 for (keys %$invalid_fks) {
    say "Rel: $_";
    for ($invalid_fks->{$_}->all) {
       say '* ' . $_->id
    }
 }

DESCRIPTION

Some people think that constraints make their databases slower. As silly as that is, I have been in a similar situation! I'm here to help you, dear developers! Basically this is a suite of methods that allow you to find violated "constraints." To be clear, the constraints I mean are the ones you tell DBIx::Class about, real constraints are fairly sure to be followed.

METHODS

fk_check_source

 my $busted = $schema->fk_check_source(
   'User',
   'Group',
   { group_id => 'id' },
 );
"fk_check_source" takes three arguments, the first is the from source moniker of a relationship. The second is the to source or source moniker of a relationship. The final argument is a hash reference representing the columns of the relationship. The return value is a resultset of the from source that do not have a corresponding to row. To be clear, the example given above would return a resultset of "User" rows that have a "group_id" that points to a "Group" that does not exist.

fk_check_source_auto

 my $broken = $schema->fk_check_source_auto('User');
"fk_check_source_auto" takes a single argument: the source to check. It will check all the foreign key (that is, "belongs_to") relationships for missing... "foreign" rows. The return value will be a hashref where the keys are the relationship name and the values are resultsets of the respective violated relationship.

dup_check_source

 my $smashed = $schema->fk_check_source( 'Group', ['id'] );
"dup_check_source" takes two arguments, the first is the source moniker to be checked. The second is an arrayref of columns that "should be" unique. The return value is a resultset of the source that duplicate the passed columns. So with the example above the resultset would return all groups that are "duplicates" of other groups based on "id".

dup_check_source_auto

 my $ruined = $schema->dup_check_source_auto('Group');
"dup_check_source_auto" takes a single argument, which is the name of the resultsource in which to check for duplicates. It will return a hashref where they keys are the names of the unique constraints to be checked. The values will be resultsets of the respective duplicate rows.

null_check_source

 my $blarg = $schema->null_check_source('Group', ['id']);
"null_check_source" tales two arguments, the first is the name of the source to check. The second is an arrayref of columns that should contain no nulls. The return value is simply a resultset of rows that contain nulls where they shouldn't be.

null_check_source_auto

 my $wrecked = $schema->null_check_source_auto('Group');
"null_check_source_auto" takes a single argument, which is the name of the resultsource in which to check for nulls. The return value is simply a resultset of rows that contain nulls where they shouldn't be. This method automatically uses the configured columns that have "is_nullable" set to false.
