Schema Editor

Schema Editor allows you to browse schema content, manage users permissions on the schema objects, and see the SQL definition of this schema. To open the editor, use the corresponding items of popup menus of the Explorer Tree, Object Manager or Object Browser.

 

The basic principles of Object Editors in PostgreSQL Maestro are explained in a separate topic. Below you will find a description of editor tabs that are unique for the current object.

 

 

The Properties tab allows you to view schema options and to browse schema content divided into groups according to their types (tables, views, functions, etc.). The popup menu of each tab allows you to create new, edit, copy or drop the appropriate schema object. The grid allows you to operate with several objects at a time. For this purpose select objects with the Shift or the Ctrl key pressed. After a group of objects is selected you can operate with them, e.g. delete several objects at once, as if it is a single object.

 

Name

Here you can change the schema name. The name of the schema must be unique among all the schema names in the database.

 

Owner

This field allows you to modify the schema owner. By default, only the owner of an object can perform various operations with the object. In order to allow other users to operate it, privileges must be granted. (However, users that have the superuser attribute can always access any object.)

 

Use the Comment field to set the schema description.

 

OID

In this field the schema OID (object identifier) is displayed. It is represented by a serial number that is automatically added by PostgreSQL to all schemas.

 

To apply the changes, select the Apply Changes item in the Navigation bar or use Ctrl+F9 or Ctrl+F7 shortcut keys.

 

It is also possible to modify object properties without opening the object editor: use the Object Properties item of the popup menu of the selected object from the explorer tree.
