NAME

       DROP SEQUENCE - remove a sequence

SYNOPSIS

       DROP SEQUENCE [ IF EXISTS ] name [, ...] [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

DESCRIPTION

       DROP  SEQUENCE  removes  sequence number generators. A sequence can only be dropped by its
       owner or a superuser.

PARAMETERS

       IF EXISTS
              Do not throw an error if the sequence does not exist. A notice is  issued  in  this
              case.

       name   The name (optionally schema-qualified) of a sequence.

       CASCADE
              Automatically drop objects that depend on the sequence.

       RESTRICT
              Refuse to drop the sequence if any objects depend on it. This is the default.

EXAMPLES

       To remove the sequence serial:

       DROP SEQUENCE serial;

COMPATIBILITY

       DROP  SEQUENCE  conforms  to  the  SQL  standard, except that the standard only allows one
       sequence to be dropped per command, and apart from  the  IF  EXISTS  option,  which  is  a
       PostgreSQL extension.
