ALTER APPLICATION ROLE¶
Modifies the properties for an existing application role.
- See also:
ALTER APPLICATION ROLE [ IF EXISTS ] <name> RENAME TO <new_name> ALTER APPLICATION ROLE [ IF EXISTS ] <name> SET COMMENT = '<string_literal>' ALTER APPLICATION ROLE [ IF EXISTS ] <name> UNSET COMMENT
Specifies the identifier for the application role. If the identifier contains spaces or special characters, the entire string must be enclosed in double quotes. Identifiers enclosed in double quotes are also case-sensitive.
RENAME TO new_name
Specifies the new identifier for the application role. The identifier must be unique for within the application.
For more details, see Identifier requirements.
Note that when specifying the fully-qualified name of the application role, you cannot specify a different application. The name of the application,
application_name, must remain the same. Only the
application_role_namecan change during a rename operation.
Specifies the properties to set for the application role:
COMMENT = 'string_literal'
Adds a comment or overwrites an existing comment for the application role.
Specifies the properties to unset for the application role, which resets them to the defaults.
This command can only be run in the context of an application created using the Native Apps Framework.
Only the application role owner (i.e. the role with the OWNERSHIP privilege on the application role), or a higher role, can run this command.
Renaming an application role is only allowed within the same application.
Customers should ensure that no personal data (other than for a User object), sensitive data, export-controlled data, or other regulated data is entered as metadata when using the Snowflake service. For more information, see Metadata Fields in Snowflake.
