ALTER SERVER(7)                  SQL Commands                  ALTER SERVER(7)



NAME
       ALTER SERVER - change the definition of a foreign server


SYNOPSIS
       ALTER SERVER servername [ VERSION 'newversion' ]
           [ OPTIONS ( [ ADD | SET | DROP ] option ['value'] [, ... ] ) ]
       ALTER SERVER servername OWNER TO new_owner


DESCRIPTION
       ALTER  SERVER  changes  the definition of a foreign server. The first form changes the server version string or
       the generic options of the server (at least one clause is required).  The second form changes the owner of  the
       server.

       To  alter  the  server  you must be the owner of the server.  Additionally to alter the owner, you must own the
       server and also be a direct or indirect member of the new owning role, and you must have USAGE privilege on the
       server's foreign-data wrapper. (Note that superusers satisfy all these criteria automatically.)

PARAMETERS
       servername
              The name of an existing server.

       serverversion
              New server version.

       OPTIONS ( [ ADD | SET | DROP ] option ['value'] [, ... ] )
              Change  options for the server. ADD, SET, and DROP specify the action to be performed. ADD is assumed if
              no operation is explicitly specified. Option names must be unique; names and values are  also  validated
              using the server's foreign-data wrapper library.

EXAMPLES
       Alter server foo, add connection options:

       ALTER SERVER foo OPTIONS (host 'foo', dbname 'foodb');


       Alter server foo, change version, change host option:

       ALTER SERVER foo VERSION '8.4' OPTIONS (SET host 'baz');


COMPATIBILITY
       ALTER SERVER conforms to ISO/IEC 9075-9 (SQL/MED).
