NAME

       ALTER_SERVER - change the definition of a foreign server

SYNOPSIS

       ALTER SERVER server_name [ VERSION 'new_version' ]
           [ OPTIONS ( [ ADD | SET | DROP ] option ['value'] [, ... ] ) ]
       ALTER SERVER server_name OWNER TO new_owner

DESCRIPTION

       ALTER SERVER changes the definition of a foreign server. The first form
       changes the server version string or the generic options of the server
       (at least one clause is required). The second form changes the owner of
       the server.

       To alter the server you must be the owner of the server. Additionally
       to alter the owner, you must own the server and also be a direct or
       indirect member of the new owning role, and you must have USAGE
       privilege on the server's foreign-data wrapper. (Note that superusers
       satisfy all these criteria automatically.)

PARAMETERS

       server_name
           The name of an existing server.

       new_version
           New server version.

       OPTIONS ( [ ADD | SET | DROP ] option ['value'] [, ... ] )
           Change options for the server.  ADD, SET, and DROP specify the
           action to be performed.  ADD is assumed if no operation is
           explicitly specified. Option names must be unique; names and values
           are also validated using the server's foreign-data wrapper library.

EXAMPLES

       Alter server foo, add connection options:

           ALTER SERVER foo OPTIONS (host 'foo', dbname 'foodb');

       Alter server foo, change version, change host option:

           ALTER SERVER foo VERSION '8.4' OPTIONS (SET host 'baz');

COMPATIBILITY

       ALTER SERVER conforms to ISO/IEC 9075-9 (SQL/MED).
