NAME

       DROP_SEQUENCE - remove a sequence

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       DROP SEQUENCE removes sequence number generators. A sequence can only
       be dropped by its owner or a superuser.

PARAMETERS

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

       name
           The name (optionally schema-qualified) of a sequence.

       CASCADE
           Automatically drop objects that depend on the sequence.

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

EXAMPLES

       To remove the sequence serial:

           DROP SEQUENCE serial;

COMPATIBILITY

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