NAME

       DROP_OWNED - remove database objects owned by a database role

SYNOPSIS

       DROP OWNED BY { name | CURRENT_USER | SESSION_USER } [, ...] [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

DESCRIPTION

       DROP OWNED drops all the objects within 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 and on shared objects (databases, tablespaces) 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. However, REASSIGN OWNED
       does not deal with privileges for other objects.

       Databases and tablespaces owned by the role(s) will not be removed.

       See Section 20.4, “Dropping Roles”, in the documentation for more discussion.

COMPATIBILITY

       The DROP OWNED command is a PostgreSQL extension.
