NAME

       ALTER SCHEMA - change the definition of a schema

SYNOPSIS

       ALTER SCHEMA name RENAME TO newname
       ALTER SCHEMA name OWNER TO newowner

DESCRIPTION

       ALTER SCHEMA changes the definition of a schema.

       You  must  own  the schema to use ALTER SCHEMA.  To rename a schema you must also have the
       CREATE privilege for the database.  To alter the owner, you  must  also  be  a  direct  or
       indirect  member  of  the  new owning role, and you must have the CREATE privilege for the
       database.  (Note that superusers have all these privileges automatically.)

PARAMETERS

       name   The name of an existing schema.

       newname
              The new name of the schema. The new name cannot begin with pg_, as such  names  are
              reserved for system schemas.

       newowner
              The new owner of the schema.

COMPATIBILITY

       There is no ALTER SCHEMA statement in the SQL standard.
