drop_view: remove a view
NAMEDROP VIEW - remove a view
DROP VIEW [ IF EXISTS ] name [, ...] [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]
DROP VIEW drops an existing view. To execute this command you must be the owner of the view.
- IF EXISTS
- Do not throw an error if the view does not exist. A notice is issued in this case.
- The name (optionally schema-qualified) of the view to remove.
- Automatically drop objects that depend on the view (such as other views).
- Refuse to drop the view if any objects depend on it. This is the default.
This command will remove the view called kinds:
DROP VIEW kinds;
This command conforms to the SQL standard, except that the standard only allows one view to be dropped per command, and apart from the IF EXISTS option, which is a PostgreSQL extension.
