NAME

       REASSIGN_OWNED - change the ownership of database objects owned by a database role

SYNOPSIS

       REASSIGN OWNED BY old_role [, ...] TO new_role

DESCRIPTION

       REASSIGN OWNED instructs the system to change the ownership of the database objects owned
       by one of the old_roles, to new_role.

PARAMETERS

       old_role
           The name of a role. The ownership of all the objects in the current database owned by
           this role will be reassigned to new_role.

       new_role
           The name of the role that will be made the new owner of the affected objects.

NOTES

       REASSIGN OWNED is often used to prepare for the removal of one or more roles. Because
       REASSIGN OWNED only affects the objects in the current database, it is usually necessary
       to execute this command in each database that contains objects owned by a role that is to
       be removed.

       REASSIGN OWNED requires privileges on both the source role(s) and the target role.

       The DROP OWNED (DROP_OWNED(7)) command is an alternative that drops all the database
       objects owned by one or more roles. Note also that DROP OWNED requires privileges only on
       the source role(s).

       The REASSIGN OWNED command does not affect the privileges granted to the old_roles in
       objects that are not owned by them. Use DROP OWNED to revoke those privileges.

       The REASSIGN OWNED command does not affect the ownership of any databases owned by the
       role. Use ALTER DATABASE (ALTER_DATABASE(7)) to reassign that ownership.

COMPATIBILITY

       The REASSIGN OWNED statement is a PostgreSQL extension.
