DROP OWNED(7)		PostgreSQL 9.6.3 Documentation		 DROP OWNED(7)

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, and
	   in turn all objects that depend on those objects (see Section 5.13,
	   "Dependency Tracking", in the documentation).

       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 21.4, "Dropping Roles", in the documentation	for more
       discussion.

COMPATIBILITY
       The DROP	OWNED command is a PostgreSQL extension.
