NAME

       DROP_VIEW - remove a view

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       DROP VIEW drops an existing view. To execute this command you must be
       the owner of the view.

PARAMETERS

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

       name
           The name (optionally schema-qualified) of the view to remove.

       CASCADE
           Automatically drop objects that depend on the view (such as other
           views).

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

EXAMPLES

       This command will remove the view called kinds:

           DROP VIEW kinds;

COMPATIBILITY

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