6.12.4. Examples

In the following examples, Alice and Bob have the SELECT default privileges.

Revoke from user Alice the SELECT privilege on a table:


Since Alice had the SELECT default privilege, now Alice can no longer do SELECT operations on table1.

Revoke fom the user Bob the INSERT privilege on two tables:

REVOKE INSERT ON table1, table2 FROM Bob

Since Bob had the SELECT default privilege, revoking the INSERT privilege on table1 an table2 does not change anything for Bob who could not insert in the first place.
