Define foreign key drop downs


I asked if Appsmith can generate a form and automatically resolve foreign keys from constraints, allowing for descriptions to be shown in a dropdown. However, it seems that this feature is currently not available. The Appsmith team has created a Github issue to track this potential feature and asked for an example SQL query and the desired form output.


The user requested if Appsmith can auto-generate a form from a PostgreSQL table and resolve the foreign keys from the constraints so that descriptions for referenced IDs could be shown in a dropdown. However, this feature is not currently available in Appsmith. To address this issue, a GitHub issue was created to track the implementation of this feature. The user was requested to provide a small example SQL query and describe the desired form to be generated.
