The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Is there a runtime property that will tell me what edition is running?

  • Developer
  • Educational
  • Web
  • OEM
  • Workgroup
  • Standard
  • Advanced

Yes, use:

select property('ServerEdition')

This returns a space separated list of words describing the database server type. Values include:

  • Evaluation
  • Developer
  • Web
  • Education
  • Standard
  • Advanced
  • Workgroup
  • OEM
  • Authenticated

Just to add: This property seems only be available stating with SA 11.0.1 (where the different server versions like Workgroup or Advanced were introduced), and it may name the additional components like HA, too - cf.
