NAME

       ALTER TRIGGER - change the definition of a trigger

SYNOPSIS

       ALTER TRIGGER name ON table RENAME TO newname

DESCRIPTION

       ALTER  TRIGGER  changes  properties  of an existing trigger. The RENAME clause changes the
       name of the given trigger without otherwise changing the trigger definition.

       You must own the table on which the trigger acts to be allowed to change its properties.

PARAMETERS

       name   The name of an existing trigger to alter.

       table  The name of the table on which this trigger acts.

       newname
              The new name for the trigger.

NOTES

       The ability to temporarily enable  or  disable  a  trigger  is  provided  by  ALTER  TABLE
       [alter_table(7)],  not  by  ALTER  TRIGGER, because ALTER TRIGGER has no convenient way to
       express the option of enabling or disabling all of a table's triggers at once.

EXAMPLES

       To rename an existing trigger:

       ALTER TRIGGER emp_stamp ON emp RENAME TO emp_track_chgs;

COMPATIBILITY

       ALTER TRIGGER is a PostgreSQL extension of the SQL standard.
