CREATE SERVER(7)                 SQL Commands                 CREATE SERVER(7)



NAME
       CREATE SERVER - define a new foreign server


SYNOPSIS
       CREATE SERVER servername [ TYPE 'servertype' ] [ VERSION 'serverversion' ]
           FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER fdwname
           [ OPTIONS ( option 'value' [, ... ] ) ]


DESCRIPTION
       CREATE SERVER defines a new foreign server. The user who defines the server becomes its owner.

       A  foreign  server  typically encapsulates connection information that a foreign-data wrapper uses to access an
       external data resource.  Additional user-specific connection information may be specified by means of user map-
       pings.

       The server name must be unique within the database.

       Creating a server requires USAGE privilege on the foreign-data wrapper being used.

PARAMETERS
       servername
              The name of the foreign server to be created.

       servertype
              Optional server type.

       serverversion
              Optional server version.

       fdwname
              The name of the foreign-data wrapper that manages the server.

       OPTIONS ( option 'value' [, ... ] )
              This clause specifies the options for the server. The options typically define the connection details of
              the server, but the actual names and values are dependent on the server's foreign-data wrapper.

NOTES
       When using the dblink module (see in the documentation), the foreign server name can be used as an argument  of
       the  dblink_connect(l)  function to indicate the connection parameters. See also there for more examples. It is
       necessary to have the USAGE privilege on the foreign server to be able to use it in this way.

EXAMPLES
       Create a server foo that uses the built-in foreign-data wrapper default:

       CREATE SERVER foo FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER "default";


       Create a server myserver that uses the foreign-data wrapper pgsql:

       CREATE SERVER myserver FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER pgsql OPTIONS (host 'foo', dbname 'foodb', port '5432');


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