NAME

       DROP OWNED - remove database objects owned by a database role

SYNOPSIS

       DROP OWNED BY name [, ...] [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

DESCRIPTION

       DROP  OWNED  drops  all  the  objects in the current database that are owned by one of the
       specified roles. Any privileges granted to the given  roles  on  objects  in  the  current
       database will also be revoked.

PARAMETERS

       name   The  name  of  a  role  whose objects will be dropped, and whose privileges will be
              revoked.

       CASCADE
              Automatically drop objects that depend on the affected objects.

       RESTRICT
              Refuse to drop the objects owned by a role if any other database objects depend  on
              one of the affected objects. This is the default.

NOTES

       DROP  OWNED  is  often  used to prepare for the removal of one or more roles. Because DROP
       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.

       Using the CASCADE option might make the command recurse to objects owned by other users.

       The  REASSIGN  OWNED  [reassign_owned(7)]  command  is  an  alternative that reassigns the
       ownership of all the database objects owned by one or more roles.

COMPATIBILITY

       The DROP OWNED statement is a PostgreSQL extension.
