DROP VIEW(7)                     SQL Commands                     DROP VIEW(7)



NAME
       DROP VIEW - remove a view


SYNOPSIS
       DROP VIEW [ IF EXISTS ] name [, ...] [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]


DESCRIPTION
       DROP VIEW drops an existing view. To execute this command you must be the owner of the view.

PARAMETERS
       IF EXISTS
              Do not throw an error if the view does not exist. A notice is issued in this case.

       name   The name (optionally schema-qualified) of the view to remove.

       CASCADE
              Automatically drop objects that depend on the view (such as other views).

       RESTRICT
              Refuse to drop the view if any objects depend on it. This is the default.

EXAMPLES
       This command will remove the view called kinds:

       DROP VIEW kinds;


COMPATIBILITY
       This command conforms to the SQL standard, except that the standard only allows one view to be dropped per com-
       mand, and apart from the IF EXISTS option, which is a PostgreSQL extension.

SEE ALSO
       ALTER VIEW [alter_view(7)], CREATE VIEW [create_view(7)]
