Changes the definition of a view.
ALTER VIEW name RENAME TO newname
ALTER VIEW changes the definition of a view. The only currently available functionality is to rename the view. To execute this command you must be the owner of the view.
- The (optionally schema-qualified) name of an existing filespace.
- The new name of the view.
Some variants of ALTER TABLE can be used with views as well; for example, to rename a view, it is also possible to use ALTER TABLE RENAME. To change the schema or owner of a view, you currently must use ALTER TABLE.
Rename the view myview to newview:
ALTER VIEW myview RENAME TO newview;
Change the owner of tablespace myfs:
ALTER FILESPACE myfs OWNER TO dba;
ALTER VIEW is a Greenplum Database extension of the SQL standard.
