DROPUSER(1)		PostgreSQL Client Applications		   DROPUSER(1)

       dropuser - remove a PostgreSQL user account

       dropuser [ option... ]  [ username ]

       dropuser	 removes  an  existing	PostgreSQL  user.  Only superusers and
       users with the CREATEROLE privilege can remove  PostgreSQL  users.  (To
       remove a superuser, you must yourself be a superuser.)

       dropuser	 is a wrapper around the SQL command DROP ROLE [drop_role(5)].
       There is no effective difference between dropping users via this	 util‐
       ity and via other methods for accessing the server.

       dropuser accepts the following command-line arguments:

	      Specifies	 the  name  of the PostgreSQL user to be removed.  You
	      will be prompted for a name if none is specified on the  command


       --echo Echo  the	 commands  that	 dropuser  generates  and sends to the


	      Prompt for confirmation before actually removing the user.


	      Do not display a response.

       dropuser also accepts the following command-line arguments for  connec‐
       tion parameters:

       -h host

       --host host
	      Specifies	 the  host  name of the machine on which the server is
	      running. If the value begins with a slash, it  is	 used  as  the
	      directory for the Unix domain socket.

       -p port

       --port port
	      Specifies	 the  TCP port or local Unix domain socket file exten‐
	      sion on which the server is listening for connections.

       -U username

       --username username
	      User name to connect as (not the user name to drop)


	      Force password prompt (to connect to the	server,	 not  for  the
	      password of the user to be dropped).



       PGUSER Default connection parameters

       This utility, like most other PostgreSQL utilities, also uses the envi‐
       ronment variables supported by libpq (see in the documentation).

       In case of difficulty, see DROP ROLE  [drop_role(5)]  and  psql(1)  for
       discussions  of	potential  problems  and error messages.  The database
       server must be running at the targeted host. Also, any default  connec‐
       tion  settings  and  environment	 variables used by the libpq front-end
       library will apply.

       To remove user joe from the default database server:

       $ dropuser joe
       DROP ROLE

       To remove user joe using the server on host eden, port 5000, with veri‐
       fication and a peek at the underlying command:

       $ dropuser -p 5000 -h eden -i -e joe
       Role "joe" will be permanently removed.
       Are you sure? (y/n) y
       DROP ROLE "joe"
       DROP ROLE

       createuser(1), DROP ROLE [drop_role(5)]
