14.28. REVOKE ROLES

Synopsis

REVOKE
[ ADMIN OPTION FOR ]
role [, ...]
FROM ( user | USER user | ROLE role) [, ...]
[ GRANTED BY ( user | USER user | ROLE role | CURRENT_USER | CURRENT_ROLE ) ]
[ IN catalog ]

Description

Revokes the specified role(s) from the specified principal(s) in catalog or in the current catalog if catalog is not specified.

If the ADMIN OPTION FOR clause is specified, the GRANT permission is revoked instead of the role.

For the REVOKE statement for roles to succeed, the user executing it either should be the role admin or should possess the GRANT option for the given role.

The optional GRANTED BY clause causes the role(s) to be revoked with the specified principal as a revoker. If the GRANTED BY clause is not specified, the roles are revoked by the current user as a revoker.

Examples

Revoke role bar from user foo

REVOKE bar FROM USER foo;

Revoke admin option for roles bar and foo from user baz and role qux

REVOKE ADMIN OPTION FOR bar, foo FROM USER baz, ROLE qux;

Revoke role bar from user foo in catalog baz

REVOKE bar FROM USER foo IN baz;

Limitations

Some connectors do not support role management. See connector documentation for more details.
