SHOW VIEWS

Use the SHOW VIEW command to list existing views in a particular schema.

Syntax

SHOW VIEWS [ FROM schema_name ] [ LIKE_expression ];

Parameters

Parameter or clauseDescription
schema_nameThe schema from which existing views will be listed. If not given, views from the default schema, "public", will be listed.
LIKE_expressionFilters the output based on names by applying pattern matching. See details in LIKE pattern matching expressions.

Example

Say we create the table t3 in the public schema and a view v3.

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS t3 (
v1 int,
v2 int,
v3 int)
WITH (appendonly = 'true');

CREATE VIEW v3 AS SELECT sum(v2) AS sum_v2 FROM t3;

Then we can use SHOW VIEWS to show the existing views.

SHOW VIEWS FROM public;
v3
