DROP ROLE()			 SQL Commands			   DROP ROLE()

NAME
       DROP ROLE - remove a database role

SYNOPSIS
       DROP ROLE name [, ...]

DESCRIPTION
       DROP ROLE removes the specified role(s).	 To drop a superuser role, you
       must be a superuser yourself; to drop  non-superuser  roles,  you  must
       have CREATEROLE privilege.

       A  role	cannot be removed if it is still referenced in any database of
       the cluster; an error will be raised if so. Before dropping  the	 role,
       you must drop all the objects it owns (or reassign their ownership) and
       revoke any privileges the role has been granted.

       However, it is not necessary to remove role memberships	involving  the
       role;  DROP  ROLE  automatically	 revokes any memberships of the target
       role in other roles, and of other roles in the target role.  The	 other
       roles are not dropped nor otherwise affected.

PARAMETERS
       name   The name of the role to remove.

NOTES
       PostgreSQL  includes a program dropuser [dropuser(1)] that has the same
       functionality as this command (in fact, it calls this command) but  can
       be run from the command shell.

EXAMPLES
       To drop a role:

       DROP ROLE jonathan;

COMPATIBILITY
       The  SQL	 standard defines DROP ROLE, but it allows only one role to be
       dropped at a time, and it specifies  different  privilege  requirements
       than PostgreSQL uses.

SEE ALSO
       CREATE  ROLE  [create_role(7)],	ALTER  ROLE  [alter_role(l)], SET ROLE
       [set_role(l)]
