NAME

       DROP SEQUENCE - remove a sequence

SYNOPSIS

       DROP SEQUENCE [ IF EXISTS ] name [, ...] [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

DESCRIPTION

       DROP  SEQUENCE  removes sequence number generators. A sequence can only
       be dropped by its owner or a superuser.

PARAMETERS

       IF EXISTS
              Do not throw an error if the sequence does not exist.  A  notice
              is issued in this case.

       name   The name (optionally schema-qualified) of a sequence.

       CASCADE
              Automatically drop objects that depend on the sequence.

       RESTRICT
              Refuse to drop the sequence if any objects depend on it. This is
              the default.

EXAMPLES

       To remove the sequence serial:

       DROP SEQUENCE serial;

COMPATIBILITY

       DROP SEQUENCE conforms to the SQL standard, except  that  the  standard
       only  allows one sequence to be dropped per command, and apart from the
       IF EXISTS option, which is a PostgreSQL extension.
