NAME

       ALTER_OPERATOR - change the definition of an operator

SYNOPSIS

       ALTER OPERATOR name ( { left_type | NONE } , { right_type | NONE } )
           OWNER TO { new_owner | CURRENT_USER | SESSION_USER }

       ALTER OPERATOR name ( { left_type | NONE } , { right_type | NONE } )
           SET SCHEMA new_schema

DESCRIPTION

       ALTER OPERATOR changes the definition of an operator. The only currently available
       functionality is to change the owner of the operator.

       You must own the operator to use ALTER OPERATOR. To alter the owner, you must also be a
       direct or indirect member of the new owning role, and that role must have CREATE privilege
       on the operator's schema. (These restrictions enforce that altering the owner doesn't do
       anything you couldn't do by dropping and recreating the operator. However, a superuser can
       alter ownership of any operator anyway.)

PARAMETERS

       name
           The name (optionally schema-qualified) of an existing operator.

       left_type
           The data type of the operator's left operand; write NONE if the operator has no left
           operand.

       right_type
           The data type of the operator's right operand; write NONE if the operator has no right
           operand.

       new_owner
           The new owner of the operator.

       new_schema
           The new schema for the operator.

EXAMPLES

       Change the owner of a custom operator a @@ b for type text:

           ALTER OPERATOR @@ (text, text) OWNER TO joe;

COMPATIBILITY

       There is no ALTER OPERATOR statement in the SQL standard.
