52.17. pg_default_acl

The catalog pg_default_acl stores initial privileges to be assigned to newly created objects.

Table 52.17. pg_default_acl Columns

Name Type References Description
oid oid   Row identifier (hidden attribute; must be explicitly selected)
defaclrole oid pg_authid.oid The OID of the role associated with this entry
defaclnamespace oid pg_namespace.oid The OID of the namespace associated with this entry, or 0 if none
defaclobjtype char   Type of object this entry is for: r = relation (table, view), S = sequence, f = function, T = type, n = schema
defaclacl aclitem[]   Access privileges that this type of object should have on creation

A pg_default_acl entry shows the initial privileges to be assigned to an object belonging to the indicated user. There are currently two types of entry: global entries with defaclnamespace = 0, and per-schema entries that reference a particular schema. If a global entry is present then it overrides the normal hard-wired default privileges for the object type. A per-schema entry, if present, represents privileges to be added to the global or hard-wired default privileges.

Note that when an ACL entry in another catalog is null, it is taken to represent the hard-wired default privileges for its object, not whatever might be in pg_default_acl at the moment. pg_default_acl is only consulted during object creation.
