NAME

       ALTER_OPERATOR_CLASS - change the definition of an operator class

SYNOPSIS

       ALTER OPERATOR CLASS name USING index_method RENAME TO new_name
       ALTER OPERATOR CLASS name USING index_method OWNER TO new_owner
       ALTER OPERATOR CLASS name USING index_method SET SCHEMA new_schema

DESCRIPTION

       ALTER OPERATOR CLASS changes the definition of an operator class.

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

PARAMETERS

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

       index_method
           The name of the index method this operator class is for.

       new_name
           The new name of the operator class.

       new_owner
           The new owner of the operator class.

       new_schema
           The new schema for the operator class.

COMPATIBILITY

       There is no ALTER OPERATOR CLASS statement in the SQL standard.
