The SHOW ROLES statement lists the roles for all databases.

Note:

New in v20.1: Since the keywords ROLES and USERS can now be used interchangeably in SQL statements for enhanced Postgres compatibility, SHOW ROLES is now an alias for SHOW USERS.

Synopsis

SHOW ROLES

Required privileges

The role must have the SELECT privilege on the system.users and system.role_members tables.

Example
