ALTER TRIGGER(7)                 SQL Commands                 ALTER TRIGGER(7)



NAME
       ALTER TRIGGER - change the definition of a trigger


SYNOPSIS
       ALTER TRIGGER name ON table RENAME TO newname


DESCRIPTION
       ALTER  TRIGGER changes properties of an existing trigger. The RENAME clause changes the name of the given trig-
       ger without otherwise changing the trigger definition.

       You must own the table on which the trigger acts to be allowed to change its properties.

PARAMETERS
       name   The name of an existing trigger to alter.

       table  The name of the table on which this trigger acts.

       newname
              The new name for the trigger.

NOTES
       The ability to temporarily enable or disable a trigger is provided by  ALTER  TABLE  [alter_table(7)],  not  by
       ALTER  TRIGGER,  because ALTER TRIGGER has no convenient way to express the option of enabling or disabling all
       of a table's triggers at once.

EXAMPLES
       To rename an existing trigger:

       ALTER TRIGGER emp_stamp ON emp RENAME TO emp_track_chgs;


COMPATIBILITY
       ALTER TRIGGER is a PostgreSQL extension of the SQL standard.
