Description

DROP AGGREGATE will delete an existing aggregate function. To execute this command the current user must be the owner of the aggregate function.

Parameters

CASCADE
Automatically drop objects that depend on the aggregate function.
RESTRICT

Examples

To remove the aggregate function myavg for type integer:

DROP AGGREGATE myavg(integer);
