REFRESH_MATERIALIZED_VIEW - replace the contents of a materialized view
REFRESH MATERIALIZED VIEW [ CONCURRENTLY ] name
[ WITH [ NO ] DATA ]
REFRESH MATERIALIZED VIEW completely replaces the contents of a
materialized view. The old contents are discarded. If WITH DATA is
specified (or defaults) the backing query is executed to provide the
new data, and the materialized view is left in a scannable state. If
WITH NO DATA is specified no new data is generated and the materialized
view is left in an unscannable state.
CONCURRENTLY and WITH NO DATA may not be specified together.
Refresh the materialized view without locking out concurrent
selects on the materialized view. Without this option a refresh
which affects a lot of rows will tend to use fewer resources and
complete more quickly, but could block other connections which are
trying to read from the materialized view. This option may be
faster in cases where a small number of rows are affected.
This option is only allowed if there is at least one UNIQUE index
on the materialized view which uses only column names and includes
all rows; that is, it must not index on any expressions nor include
a WHERE clause.
This option may not be used when the materialized view is not
Even with this option only one REFRESH at a time may run against
any one materialized view.
The name (optionally schema-qualified) of the materialized view to
While the default index for future CLUSTER(7) operations is retained,
REFRESH MATERIALIZED VIEW does not order the generated rows based on
this property. If you want the data to be ordered upon generation, you
must use an ORDER BY clause in the backing query.
This command will replace the contents of the materialized view called
order_summary using the query from the materialized view's definition,
and leave it in a scannable state:
REFRESH MATERIALIZED VIEW order_summary;
This command will free storage associated with the materialized view
annual_statistics_basis and leave it in an unscannable state:
REFRESH MATERIALIZED VIEW annual_statistics_basis WITH NO DATA;
REFRESH MATERIALIZED VIEW is a PostgreSQL extension.
