NAME

       ALTER OPERATOR - change the definition of an operator

SYNOPSIS

       ALTER OPERATOR name ( { lefttype | NONE } , { righttype | NONE } ) OWNER TO newowner

DESCRIPTION

       ALTER  OPERATOR  changes  the  definition  of  an  operator.  The  only
       currently available  functionality  is  to  change  the  owner  of  the
       operator.

       You  must  own the operator to use ALTER OPERATOR.  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 operator’s schema.
       (These restrictions enforce that altering the owner doesn’t do anything
       you  couldn’t  do  by dropping and recreating the operator.  However, a
       superuser can alter ownership of any operator anyway.)

PARAMETERS

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

       lefttype
              The  data type of the operator’s left operand; write NONE if the
              operator has no left operand.

       righttype
              The data type of the operator’s right operand; write NONE if the
              operator has no right operand.

       newowner
              The new owner of the operator.

EXAMPLES

       Change the owner of a custom operator a @@ b for type text:

       ALTER OPERATOR @@ (text, text) OWNER TO joe;

COMPATIBILITY

       There is no ALTER OPERATOR statement in the SQL standard.
