Finding duplicates in PostgresSQL

Recently I had the task of finding some duplicate entries in a PostgreSQL database. We are using it in our production server and some old entry was duplicate. As we needed to be sure that there were none, here’s what I did to find it out

<br /> select * from (<br /> SELECT id,<br /> ROW_NUMBER() OVER(PARTITION BY merchant_Id, url ORDER BY id asc) AS Row<br /> FROM Photos<br /> ) dups<br /> where<br /> dups.Row > 1<br />

OVER PARTITION works similarly to a GROUP BY but without getting the records merged in one entry
