REVOKE (Table)

Revokes table privileges from users and roles.

Syntax

REVOKE [ GRANT OPTION FOR ] { privilege[,…] | ALL [ PRIVILEGES ] }
   ON { 
     [ TABLE ] [[database.]schema.]table[,…] 
     | ALL TABLES IN SCHEMA [database.]schema[,…] }
   FROM grantee[,…]
   [ CASCADE ]

Parameters

GRANT OPTION FOR

Revokes the grant option for the specified privileges. Current privileges for grantees remain unaffected. If you omit this clause, Vertica revokes both the grant option and current privileges.

privilege

One of the following privileges:

ALL [PRIVILEGES]

Revokes all table privileges that also belong to the revoker. Users cannot revoke privileges that they themselves lack.

The optional keyword PRIVILEGES is supported to comply with the SQL standard.

[database.]schema

Specifies a schema, by default public. If schema is any schema other than public, you must supply the schema name. For example:

myschema.thisDbObject

One exception applies: you can specify system tables without their schema name.

If you specify a database, it must be the current database.

TABLE table

Specifies the table on which to revoke privileges.

ON ALL TABLES IN SCHEMA schema

Revokes the specified privileges on all tables and views in schema schema.

grantee Specifies whose privileges are revoked, one of the following:
CASCADE

If the target grantees have a grant option to extend the specified privileges to other users, CASCADE specifies to search for these users and revoke the privileges from them also.

Privileges

Non-superuser, one of the following:

  • Owner
  • Privileges grantee given the option (WITH GRANT OPTION) of revoking privileges from other users or roles.

Examples

Revoke user Joe's privileges on table customer_dimension.

=> REVOKE ALL PRIVILEGES ON TABLE customer_dimension FROM Joe;
REVOKE PRIVILEGE
