Changes the definition of a schema.
ALTER SCHEMA name RENAME TO newname ALTER SCHEMA name OWNER TO newowner
ALTER SCHEMA changes the definition of a schema.
You must own the schema to use ALTER SCHEMA. To rename a schema you must also have the CREATE privilege for the database. To alter the owner, you must also be a direct or indirect member of the new owning role, and you must have the CREATE privilege for the database. Note that superusers have all these privileges automatically.
- The name of an existing schema.
- The new name of the schema. The new name cannot begin with pg_, as such names are reserved for system schemas.
- The new owner of the schema.
There is no ALTER SCHEMA statement in the SQL standard.
