ALTER OPERATOR CLASS - change the definition of an operator class
ALTER OPERATOR CLASS name USING index_method RENAME TO newname ALTER OPERATOR CLASS name USING index_method OWNER TO newowner
ALTER OPERATOR CLASS changes the definition of an operator class.
You must own the operator class to use ALTER OPERATOR CLASS. To alter the owner, you must also be a direct or indirect member of the new owning role, and that role must have CREATE privilege on the operator classs schema. (These restrictions enforce that altering the owner doesnt do anything you couldnt do by dropping and recreating the operator class. However, a superuser can alter ownership of any operator class anyway.)
name The name (optionally schema-qualified) of an existing operator class. index_method The name of the index method this operator class is for. newname The new name of the operator class. newowner The new owner of the operator class.
There is no ALTER OPERATOR CLASS statement in the SQL standard.
CREATE OPERATOR CLASS [create_operator_class(7)], DROP OPERATOR CLASS [drop_operator_class(l)]
