Name

DROP POLICY -- remove a row level security policy from a table

Synopsis

DROP POLICY [ IF EXISTS ] name ON table_name [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

Description

DROP POLICY removes the specified policy from the table. Note that if the last policy is removed for a table and the table still has row level security enabled via ALTER TABLE, then the default-deny policy will be used. ALTER TABLE ... DISABLE ROW LEVEL SECURITY can be used to disable row level security for a table, whether policies for the table exist or not.

Parameters

name

The name of the policy to drop.

table_name

The name (optionally schema-qualified) of the table that the policy is on.

CASCADE

Examples

DROP POLICY p1 ON my_table;
