DROP MASKING POLICY

Removes a masking policy from the system.

Syntax

DROP MASKING POLICY <name>;

Parameters

name

Identifier for the masking policy; must be unique for your account.

The identifier value must start with an alphabetic character and cannot contain spaces or special characters unless the entire identifier string is enclosed in double quotes (e.g. "My object"). Identifiers enclosed in double quotes are also case-sensitive.

For more details, see Identifier Requirements.

Usage Notes

  • Prior to dropping a masking policy, execute the following statement to determine if any masking policies are applied to columns. For more information, see POLICY_REFERENCES.

    SELECT * from table(information_schema.policy_references(policy_name=>'<string>'));
    
  • A masking policy cannot be dropped successfully if it is currently attached to a resource. Before executing a DROP statement, UNSET the masking policy from the column with an ALTER TABLE … ALTER COLUMN or ALTER VIEW statement.

Example

DROP MASKING POLICY ssn_mask;
