REASSIGN_OWNED (7) - Linux Man Pages
REASSIGN_OWNED: change the ownership of database objects owned by a database role
REASSIGN_OWNED - change the ownership of database objects owned by a database role
REASSIGN OWNED BY old_role [, ...] TO new_role
- The name of a role. The ownership of all the objects in the current database owned by this role will be reassigned to new_role.
- The name of the role that will be made the new owner of the affected objects.
REASSIGN OWNED is often used to prepare for the removal of one or more roles. Because REASSIGN OWNED only affects the objects in the current database, it is usually necessary to execute this command in each database that contains objects owned by a role that is to be removed.
REASSIGN OWNED requires privileges on both the source role(s) and the target role.
The DROP OWNED (DROP_OWNED(7)) command is an alternative that simply drops all the database objects owned by one or more roles.
The REASSIGN OWNED command does not affect any privileges granted to the old_roles for objects that are not owned by them. Use DROP OWNED to revoke such privileges.
See Section 20.4, "Dropping Roles", in the documentation for more discussion.
The REASSIGN OWNED command does not affect the ownership of any databases owned by the role. Use ALTER DATABASE (ALTER_DATABASE(7)) to reassign that ownership.
