NAME

       DROP GROUP - remove a user group

SYNOPSIS

       DROP GROUP name

DESCRIPTION

       DROP  GROUP removes the specified group. The users in the group are not
       removed.

PARAMETERS

       name   The name of an existing group.

NOTES

       It is unwise to drop a  group  that  has  any  granted  permissions  on
       objects.  Currently, this is not enforced, but it is likely that future
       versions of PostgreSQL will check for the error.

EXAMPLES

       To drop a group:

       DROP GROUP staff;

COMPATIBILITY

       There is no DROP GROUP statement in the SQL standard.
