Simon Pills: "Someone finally invented an intuitively used and easily customized PostgreSQL database administration tool! Keep up the good work. I will be in touch. I am able to do this horrendous work because your software enabled me to create a new database with all necessary objects in several minutes! I am sure that I have found what I really need".
Armin Braunstein: "Also I must say, that your PostgreSQL Maestro tool is the best tool for PostgreSQL I have seen. For general I am really happy about the tool and how it works".

Editing view properties

View Editor provides you with an ability to edit view properties. The Properties tab allows you to change the view name, view definition, the view owner and the comment for the view. You can also find the body of the view and the view OID there.

 

Subitems

Every tab is intended for managing some view subitems (e.g. fields, rules). Each object can be opened in its editor. Use grid’s popup menu to create new, edit or drop the selected view subitems. Using the popup menu you can also copy the selected objects to clipboard or paste previously copied objects.
You can operate on several objects at a time. For this you have to select view objects with the Shift or the Ctrl key pressed. After a group of objects is selected you can operate on it, e.g. delete several objects at once, as if it were a single object.

Body

You can edit the view definition in this box.

 

Use the Name field to specify the view name.

 

Note: the name of the object must be unique among all the object names in its container. Moreover, all the objects that are source of data need unique names among themselves. You can use any identifier that is allowed by PostgreSQL server.

Owner

Represents the view 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.)

 

Comment

This field stores a comment to the view.

 

OID

This field stores the view OID (object identifier). This is a serial number that is automatically added by PostgreSQL to all views.

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.
