DROP POLICY

DROP POLICY — remove a row level security policy from a table

Synopsis

DROP POLICY [ IF EXISTS ] name ON table_name [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

Description

DROP POLICY removes the specified policy from the table. Note that if the last policy is removed for a table and the table still has row level security enabled via ALTER TABLE , then the default-deny policy will be used. ALTER TABLE ... DISABLE ROW LEVEL SECURITY can be used to disable row level security for a table, whether policies for the table exist or not.

Parameters

  • IF EXISTS

    • Do not throw an error if the policy does not exist. A notice is issued in this case.
  • name

    • The name of the policy to drop.
  • table_name

    • The name (optionally schema-qualified) of the table that the policy is on.
  • CASCADE
    RESTRICT

    • These key words do not have any effect, since there are no dependencies on policies.

Examples

To drop the policy called p1 on the table named my_table :

DROP POLICY p1 ON my_table;
