Table 36.52. transforms Columns

udt_catalog sql_identifier Name of the database that contains the type the transform is for (always the current database)
udt_schema sql_identifier Name of the schema that contains the type the transform is for
udt_name sql_identifier Name of the type the transform is for
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 36.41 for more information.
group_name sql_identifier The SQL standard allows defining transforms in groups, and selecting a group at run time. PostgreSQL does not support this. Instead, transforms are specific to a language. As a compromise, this field contains the language the transform is for.
