NAME

       ALTER SCHEMA - change the definition of a schema

SYNOPSIS

       ALTER SCHEMA name RENAME TO newname
       ALTER SCHEMA name OWNER TO newowner

DESCRIPTION

       ALTER SCHEMA changes the definition of a schema.

       You  must  own  the schema to use ALTER SCHEMA.  To rename a schema you
       must also have the CREATE privilege for the  database.   To  alter  the
       owner,  you  must also be a direct or indirect member of the new owning
       role, and you must have the CREATE privilege for the  database.   (Note
       that superusers have all these privileges automatically.)

PARAMETERS

       name   The name of an existing schema.

       newname
              The  new name of the schema. The new name cannot begin with pg_,
              as such names are reserved for system schemas.

       newowner
              The new owner of the schema.

COMPATIBILITY

       There is no ALTER SCHEMA statement in the SQL standard.
