ALTER DATA SOURCE

Function

ALTER DATA SOURCE modifies the attributes and content of the data source.

The attributes include the name and owner. The content includes the type, version, and connection options.

Precautions

  • Only the initial user, system administrator, and owner have the permission to modify data sources.
  • To change the owner, the new owner must be the initial user or a system administrator.
  • If the password option is displayed, ensure that the datasource.key.cipher and datasource.key.rand files exist in the *$GAUSSHOME*/bin directory of each node in openGauss. If the two files do not exist, use the gs_guc tool to generate them and use the gs_ssh tool to release them to the *$GAUSSHOME*/bin directory on each node in openGauss.
