DROP TRIGGER

Name

DROP TRIGGER -- remove a trigger

Synopsis

DROP TRIGGER 
name
 ON 
table
 [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

Description

DROP TRIGGER will remove an existing trigger definition. To execute this command, the current user must be the owner of the table for which the trigger is defined.

Parameters

name

The name of the trigger to remove.

table

The name (optionally schema-qualified) of the table for which the trigger is defined.

CASCADE

Automatically drop objects that depend on the trigger.

RESTRICT

Refuse to drop the trigger if any objects depend on it. This is the default.

Examples

Destroy the trigger if_dist_exists on the table films:

DROP TRIGGER if_dist_exists ON films;

Compatibility

The DROP TRIGGER statement in PostgreSQL is incompatible with the SQL standard. In the SQL standard, trigger names are not local to tables, so the command is simply DROP TRIGGER name .
