NAME

       REASSIGN  OWNED  -  change the ownership of database objects owned by a
       database role

SYNOPSIS

       REASSIGN OWNED BY old_role [, ...] TO new_role

DESCRIPTION

       REASSIGN OWNED instructs the system to  change  the  ownership  of  the
       database objects owned by one of the old_roles, to new_role.

PARAMETERS

       old_role
              The  name  of  a  role.  The ownership of all the objects in the
              current database owned  by  this  role  will  be  reassigned  to
              new_role.

       new_role
              The  name  of  the  role  that will be made the new owner of the
              affected objects.

NOTES

       REASSIGN OWNED is often used to prepare for the removal of one or  more
       roles.  Because  REASSIGN OWNED only affects the objects in the current
       database, it is usually necessary  to  execute  this  command  in  each
       database that contains objects owned by a role that is to be removed.

       The DROP OWNED [drop_owned(7)] command is an alternative that drops all
       the database objects owned by one or more roles.

       The REASSIGN OWNED command does not affect the  privileges  granted  to
       the  old_roles in objects that are not owned by them. Use DROP OWNED to
       revoke those privileges.

COMPATIBILITY

       The REASSIGN OWNED statement is a PostgreSQL extension.
