NAME

       DROP TRIGGER - remove a trigger

SYNOPSIS

       DROP TRIGGER [ IF EXISTS ] name ON table [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

DESCRIPTION

       DROP  TRIGGER removes an existing trigger definition. To execute this command, the current
       user must be the owner of the table for which the trigger is defined.

PARAMETERS

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

       name   The name of the trigger to remove.

       table  The  name  (optionally  schema-qualified)  of  the  table  for which the trigger is
              defined.

       CASCADE
              Automatically drop objects that depend on the trigger.

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

EXAMPLES

       Destroy the trigger if_dist_exists on the table films:

       DROP TRIGGER if_dist_exists ON films;

COMPATIBILITY

       The DROP TRIGGER statement in PostgreSQL is incompatible with the SQL standard. In the SQL
       standard,  trigger  names  are  not local to tables, so the command is simply DROP TRIGGER
       name.
