Note:
Cockroach Labs supports the current stable release and two releases prior. Therefore, this version will no longer be supported after the Fall 2019 release.

New in v2.0: The REVOKE <roles> statement lets you revoke a role or user's membership to a role.

Note:
REVOKE <roles> is an enterprise-only feature.

Synopsis

REVOKE ADMIN OPTION FOR role_name , FROM user_name ,

Required Privileges

The user revoking role membership must be a role admin (i.e., members with the ADMIN OPTION) or a superuser (i.e., a member of the admin role).

Considerations

  • The root user cannot be revoked from the admin role.

Parameters

Parameter Description
ADMIN OPTION Revoke the user's role admin status.
role_name The name of the role from which you want to remove members. To revoke members from multiple roles, use a comma-separated list of role names.
user_name The name of the user or role from whom you want to revoke membership. To revoke multiple members, use a comma-separated list of user and/or role names.
