Creating a column of type: TIMESTAMP WITHOUT TIME ZONE in Postgresql results in "WITHOUT TIME ZONE" getting stripped out


Hi there,

I am trailing DataGrip and using a Postgresql database.  I am creating a table with the following column:

created     TIMESTAMP WITHOUT TIME ZONE DEFAULT timezone('utc' :: TEXT, now()),

When I save the table I get no error.
When I edit the table again using DataGrip Modify Table GUI editor, it does not show "WITHOUT TIME ZONE".
When I view the table in pgAdmin, it does show the "WITHOUT TIME ZONE", so it has been saved by DataGrip, but it does not show it in the Modify Table window, or when view the create table statement using the DataGrip SQL Scripts > Source Editor option from the context menu.  I did a reload of that script using the Reload button but it only shows the following:

created     TIMESTAMP DEFAULT timezone('utc' :: TEXT, now()),

How can I resolve this?  It is not much good if the GUI and table scripting functions do not represent the actual schema.

I am using:

It happens because TIMESTAMP and TIMESTAMP WITHOUT TIME ZONE is the equal data types.

Thanks for the response.  This makes sense.
