REASSIGN OWNED(7)	PostgreSQL 9.6.3 Documentation	     REASSIGN OWNED(7)

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

COMPATIBILITY
       The REASSIGN OWNED command is a PostgreSQL extension.
