NAME

       ALTER CONVERSION - change the definition of a conversion

SYNOPSIS

       ALTER CONVERSION name RENAME TO newname
       ALTER CONVERSION name OWNER TO newowner

DESCRIPTION

       ALTER CONVERSION changes the definition of a conversion.

       You  must  own  the  conversion  to use ALTER CONVERSION.  To alter the
       owner, you must also be a direct or indirect member of the  new  owning
       role,  and  that  role  must  have CREATE privilege on the conversion’s
       schema. (These restrictions enforce that altering the owner doesn’t  do
       anything  you  couldn’t  do  by dropping and recreating the conversion.
       However, a superuser can alter ownership of any conversion anyway.)

PARAMETERS

       name   The  name   (optionally   schema-qualified)   of   an   existing
              conversion.

       newname
              The new name of the conversion.

       newowner
              The new owner of the conversion.

EXAMPLES

       To rename the conversion iso_8859_1_to_utf8 to latin1_to_unicode:

       ALTER CONVERSION iso_8859_1_to_utf8 RENAME TO latin1_to_unicode;

       To change the owner of the conversion iso_8859_1_to_utf8 to joe:

       ALTER CONVERSION iso_8859_1_to_utf8 OWNER TO joe;

COMPATIBILITY

       There is no ALTER CONVERSION statement in the SQL standard.
