NAME

       ALTER OPERATOR CLASS - change the definition of an operator class

SYNOPSIS

       ALTER OPERATOR CLASS name USING index_method RENAME TO newname
       ALTER OPERATOR CLASS name USING index_method OWNER TO newowner

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.

       newname
              The new name of the operator class.

       newowner
              The new owner of the operator class.

COMPATIBILITY

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