30.25. routine_privileges

The view routine_privileges identifies all privileges granted on functions to the current user or by the current user. There is one row for each combination of function, grantor, and grantee. Privileges granted to groups are identified in the view role_routine_grants.

Table 30-23. routine_privileges Columns

Name Data Type Description
grantor sql_identifier Name of the user that granted the privilege
grantee sql_identifier Name of the user or group that the privilege was granted to
specific_catalog sql_identifier Name of the database containing the function (always the current database)
specific_schema sql_identifier Name of the schema containing the function
specific_name sql_identifier The "specific name" of the function. See Section 30.26 for more information.
routine_catalog sql_identifier Name of the database containing the function (always the current database)
routine_schema sql_identifier Name of the schema containing the function
routine_name sql_identifier Name of the function (may be duplicated in case of overloading)
privilege_type character_data Always EXECUTE (the only privilege type for functions)
is_grantable character_data YES if the privilege is grantable, NO if not

Note that the column grantee makes no distinction between users and groups. If you have users and groups with the same name, there is unfortunately no way to distinguish them. A future version of PostgreSQL will possibly prohibit having users and groups with the same name.
