NAME

       DROP_AGGREGATE - remove an aggregate function

SYNOPSIS

       DROP AGGREGATE [ IF EXISTS ] name ( aggregate_signature ) [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

       where aggregate_signature is:

       * |
       [ argmode ] [ argname ] argtype [ , ... ] |
       [ [ argmode ] [ argname ] argtype [ , ... ] ] ORDER BY [ argmode ] [ argname ] argtype [ , ... ]

DESCRIPTION

       DROP AGGREGATE removes an existing aggregate function. To execute this command the current
       user must be the owner of the aggregate function.

PARAMETERS

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

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

       argmode
           The mode of an argument: IN or VARIADIC. If omitted, the default is IN.

       argname
           The name of an argument. Note that DROP AGGREGATE does not actually pay any attention
           to argument names, since only the argument data types are needed to determine the
           aggregate function's identity.

       argtype
           An input data type on which the aggregate function operates. To reference a
           zero-argument aggregate function, write * in place of the list of argument
           specifications. To reference an ordered-set aggregate function, write ORDER BY between
           the direct and aggregated argument specifications.

       CASCADE
           Automatically drop objects that depend on the aggregate function.

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

NOTES

       Alternative syntaxes for referencing ordered-set aggregates are described under ALTER
       AGGREGATE (ALTER_AGGREGATE(7)).

EXAMPLES

       To remove the aggregate function myavg for type integer:

           DROP AGGREGATE myavg(integer);

       To remove the hypothetical-set aggregate function myrank, which takes an arbitrary list of
       ordering columns and a matching list of direct arguments:

           DROP AGGREGATE myrank(VARIADIC "any" ORDER BY VARIADIC "any");

COMPATIBILITY

       There is no DROP AGGREGATE statement in the SQL standard.
