I had to backup a PostGIS model in a geopackage and I wonder how to load a non-spatial table, aka a table with NO geometry_column.

1 Answer 1


Just had to write None instead of the geometry_column name in the setDataSource method.

uri = QgsDataSourceUri()
uri.setConnection("MyServerAdress", "5432", "myBase", "user", "pass")
uri.setDataSource(schema, table, None)
layer = QgsVectorLayer(uri.uri(False), table, "postgres")

    In my case, it was necessary to add a primary key: uri.setDataSource(schema, table, None, aKeyColumn='id'). Without it, the table was invalid. Mar 28, 2022 at 6:48
