Deletes a synonym.
DROP [PUBLIC] SYNONYM [schema.]syn_name
You can use the
DROP SYNONYM command to delete existing synonyms. To run this command on a synonym, you must be the owner of the synonym and have the
USAGE privileges on the schema in which the synonym resides.
Similar to other objects that can be schema-qualified, you may have two synonyms with the same name in your search path. To disambiguate the name of the synonym to be dropped, include a schema name. Unless a synonym is schema-qualified in the
DROP SYNONYM command, PolarDB-O deletes the first instance of the synonym that is found in your search path.
You can optionally add the
PUBLIC clause to drop a synonym that resides in the public schema. The
DROP PUBLIC SYNONYM command is compatible with Oracle databases and drops a synonym that resides in the public schema:
DROP PUBLIC SYNONYM syn_name;
The following example drops the personnel synonym:
DROP SYNONYM personnel;
