DROP TEXT SEARCH CONFIGURATION

DROP TEXT SEARCH CONFIGURATION — remove a text search configuration

Synopsis

DROP TEXT SEARCH CONFIGURATION [ IF EXISTS ] name [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

Description

DROP TEXT SEARCH CONFIGURATION drops an existing text search configuration. To execute this command you must be the owner of the configuration.

Parameters

  • IF EXISTS

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

    • The name (optionally schema-qualified) of an existing text search configuration.
  • CASCADE

    • Automatically drop objects that depend on the text search configuration, and in turn all objects that depend on those objects (see Section 5.13).
  • RESTRICT

    • Refuse to drop the text search configuration if any objects depend on it. This is the default.

Examples

Remove the text search configuration my_english :

DROP TEXT SEARCH CONFIGURATION my_english;

This command will not succeed if there are any existing indexes that reference the configuration in to_tsvector calls. Add CASCADE to drop such indexes along with the text search configuration.

Compatibility

There is no DROP TEXT SEARCH CONFIGURATION statement in the SQL standard.
