NAME

       UNLISTEN - stop listening for a notification

SYNOPSIS

       UNLISTEN { channel | * }

DESCRIPTION

       UNLISTEN is used to remove an existing registration for NOTIFY events.
       UNLISTEN cancels any existing registration of the current PostgreSQL
       session as a listener on the notification channel named channel. The
       special wildcard * cancels all listener registrations for the current
       session.

       NOTIFY(7) contains a more extensive discussion of the use of LISTEN and
       NOTIFY.

PARAMETERS

       channel
           Name of a notification channel (any identifier).

       *
           All current listen registrations for this session are cleared.

NOTES

       You can unlisten something you were not listening for; no warning or
       error will appear.

       At the end of each session, UNLISTEN * is automatically executed.

       A transaction that has executed UNLISTEN cannot be prepared for
       two-phase commit.

EXAMPLES

       To make a registration:

           LISTEN virtual;
           NOTIFY virtual;
           Asynchronous notification "virtual" received from server process with PID 8448.

       Once UNLISTEN has been executed, further NOTIFY messages will be
       ignored:

           UNLISTEN virtual;
           NOTIFY virtual;
           -- no NOTIFY event is received

COMPATIBILITY

       There is no UNLISTEN command in the SQL standard.
