NAME

       REASSIGN_OWNED - change the ownership of database objects owned by a database role

SYNOPSIS

       REASSIGN OWNED BY { old_role | CURRENT_USER | SESSION_USER } [, ...]
                      TO { new_role | CURRENT_USER | SESSION_USER }

DESCRIPTION

       REASSIGN OWNED instructs the system to change the ownership of database objects owned by
       any of the old_roles to new_role.

PARAMETERS

       old_role
           The name of a role. The ownership of all the objects within the current database, and
           of all shared objects (databases, tablespaces), owned by this role will be reassigned
           to new_role.

       new_role
           The name of the role that will be made the new owner of the affected objects.

NOTES

       REASSIGN OWNED is often used to prepare for the removal of one or more roles. Because
       REASSIGN OWNED does not affect objects within other databases, it is usually necessary to
       execute this command in each database that contains objects owned by a role that is to be
       removed.

       REASSIGN OWNED requires privileges on both the source role(s) and the target role.

       The DROP OWNED (DROP_OWNED(7)) command is an alternative that simply drops all the
       database objects owned by one or more roles.

       The REASSIGN OWNED command does not affect any privileges granted to the old_roles for
       objects that are not owned by them. Use DROP OWNED to revoke such privileges.

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

COMPATIBILITY

       The REASSIGN OWNED command is a PostgreSQL extension.
