NAME

ALTER_FOREIGN_DATA_WRAPPER - change the definition of a foreign-data wrapper

SYNOPSIS

ALTER FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER  name
    [ HANDLER  handler_function | NO HANDLER ]
    [ VALIDATOR  validator_function | NO VALIDATOR ]
    [ OPTIONS ( [ ADD | SET | DROP ]  option ['value'] [, ... ]) ]
ALTER FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER  name OWNER TO { new_owner | CURRENT_USER | SESSION_USER }
ALTER FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER  name RENAME TO new_name

DESCRIPTION

ALTER FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER changes the definition of a foreign-data wrapper. The first form of the command changes the support functions or the generic options of the foreign-data wrapper (at least one clause is required). The second form changes the owner of the foreign-data wrapper.
Only superusers can alter foreign-data wrappers. Additionally, only superusers can own foreign-data wrappers.

PARAMETERS

name
The name of an existing foreign-data wrapper.
HANDLER handler_function
Specifies a new handler function for the foreign-data wrapper.
NO HANDLER
This is used to specify that the foreign-data wrapper should no longer have a handler function.
 
Note that foreign tables that use a foreign-data wrapper with no handler cannot be accessed.
VALIDATOR validator_function
Specifies a new validator function for the foreign-data wrapper.
 
Note that it is possible that pre-existing options of the foreign-data wrapper, or of dependent servers, user mappings, or foreign tables, are invalid according to the new validator. PostgreSQL does not check for this. It is up to the user to make sure that these options are correct before using the modified foreign-data wrapper. However, any options specified in this ALTER FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER command will be checked using the new validator.
NO VALIDATOR
This is used to specify that the foreign-data wrapper should no longer have a validator function.
OPTIONS ( [ ADD | SET | DROP ] option ['value'] [, ... ] )
Change options for the foreign-data wrapper. 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 foreign data wrapper's validator function, if any.
new_owner
The user name of the new owner of the foreign-data wrapper.
new_name
The new name for the foreign-data wrapper.

EXAMPLES

Change a foreign-data wrapper dbi, add option foo, drop bar:
 
ALTER FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER dbi OPTIONS (ADD foo '1', DROP 'bar');
Change the foreign-data wrapper dbi validator to bob.myvalidator:
 
ALTER FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER dbi VALIDATOR bob.myvalidator;

COMPATIBILITY

ALTER FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER conforms to ISO/IEC 9075-9 (SQL/MED), except that the HANDLER, VALIDATOR, OWNER TO, and RENAME clauses are extensions.
