DROP SYNONYM

Function

DROP SYNONYM deletes a synonym.

Precautions

Only the owner of a synonym or a system administrator has the DROP SYNONYM permission.

Syntax

DROP SYNONYM [ IF EXISTS ] synonym_name [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ];

Parameter Description

  • IF EXISTS

    Reports a notice instead of an error if the specified synonym does not exist.

  • synonym_name

    Specifies the name (optionally schema-qualified) of the synonym to be deleted.

  • CASCADE | RESTRICT

    • CASCADE: automatically deletes the objects (such as views) that depend on the synonym.
    • RESTRICT: refuses to delete the synonym if any objects depend on it. This is the default action.
