4.43 usage_privileges

The view usage_privileges is meant to identify USAGE privileges granted on various kinds of objects to a currently enabled role or by a currently enabled role. In PostgreSQL, this currently only applies to domains, and since domains do not have real privileges in PostgreSQL, this view shows implicit USAGE privileges granted to PUBLIC for all domains. In the future, this view may contain more useful information.
