NAME

       RESET - restore the value of a run-time parameter to the default value

SYNOPSIS

       RESET configuration_parameter
       RESET ALL

DESCRIPTION

       RESET restores run-time parameters to their default values.  RESET is
       an alternative spelling for

           SET configuration_parameter TO DEFAULT

       Refer to SET(7) for details.

       The default value is defined as the value that the parameter would have
       had, if no SET had ever been issued for it in the current session. The
       actual source of this value might be a compiled-in default, the
       configuration file, command-line options, or per-database or per-user
       default settings. This is subtly different from defining it as "the
       value that the parameter had at session start", because if the value
       came from the configuration file, it will be reset to whatever is
       specified by the configuration file now. See Chapter 18, Server
       Configuration, in the documentation for details.

       The transactional behavior of RESET is the same as SET: its effects
       will be undone by transaction rollback.

PARAMETERS

       configuration_parameter
           Name of a settable run-time parameter. Available parameters are
           documented in Chapter 18, Server Configuration, in the
           documentation and on the SET(7) reference page.

       ALL
           Resets all settable run-time parameters to default values.

EXAMPLES

       Set the timezone configuration variable to its default value:

           RESET timezone;

COMPATIBILITY

       RESET is a PostgreSQL extension.
