CREATE 
SERVER(7) PostgreSQL 9.2.7 Documentation CREATE SERVER(7) NAME
CREATE_SERVER - define a new foreign server SYNOPSIS
CREATE SERVER server_name [ TYPE 'server_type' ] [ VERSION 'server_version' ] FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER fdw_name [ OPTIONS ( option 'value' [, ... ] ) ] DESCRIPTION
CREATE SERVER defines a new foreign server. The user who defines the server becomes its owner. A foreign server typically encapsulates connection information that a foreign-data wrapper uses to access an external data resource. Additional user-specific connection information may be specified by means of user mappings. The server name must be unique within the database. Creating a server requires USAGE privilege on the foreign-data wrapper being used. PARAMETERS
server_name The name of the foreign server to be created. server_type Optional server type. server_version Optional server version. fdw_name The name of the foreign-data wrapper that manages the server. OPTIONS ( option 'value' [, ... ] ) This clause specifies the options for the server. The options typically define the connection details of the server, but the actual names and values are dependent on the server's foreign-data wrapper. NOTES
When using the dblink module (see dblink), the foreign server name can be used as an argument of the dblink_connect(3) function to indicate the connection parameters. See also there for more examples. It is necessary to have the USAGE privilege on the foreign server to be able to use it in this way. EXAMPLES
Create a server foo that uses the built-in foreign-data wrapper default: CREATE SERVER foo FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER "default"; Create a server myserver that uses the foreign-data wrapper pgsql: CREATE SERVER myserver FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER pgsql OPTIONS (host 'foo', dbname 'foodb', port '5432'); COMPATIBILITY
CREATE SERVER conforms to ISO/IEC 9075-9 (SQL/MED). SEE ALSO

CREATE FOREIGN 
TABLE(7) PostgreSQL 9.2.7 Documentation CREATE FOREIGN TABLE(7) NAME
CREATE_FOREIGN_TABLE - define a new foreign table SYNOPSIS
CREATE FOREIGN TABLE [ IF NOT EXISTS ] table_name ( [ { column_name data_type [ OPTIONS ( option 'value' [, ... ] ) ] [ NULL | NOT NULL ] } [, ... ] ] ) SERVER server_name [ OPTIONS ( option 'value' [, ... ] ) ] DESCRIPTION
CREATE FOREIGN TABLE will create a new foreign table in the current database. The table will be owned by the user issuing the command. If a schema name is given (for example, CREATE FOREIGN TABLE myschema.mytable ...) then the table is created in the specified schema. Otherwise it is created in the current schema. The name of the foreign table must be distinct from the name of any other foreign table, table, sequence, index, or view in the same schema. CREATE FOREIGN TABLE also automatically creates a data type that represents the composite type corresponding to one row of the foreign table. Therefore, foreign tables cannot have the same name as any existing data type in the same schema. To be able to create a table, you must have USAGE privilege on all column types. PARAMETERS
IF NOT EXISTS Do not throw an error if a relation with the same name already exists. A notice is issued in this case. Note that there is no guarantee that the existing relation is anything like the one that would have been created. table_name The name (optionally schema-qualified) of the table to be created. column_name The name of a column to be created in the new table. data_type The data type of the column. This can include array specifiers. For more information on the data types supported by PostgreSQL, refer to Chapter 8, Data Types, in the documentation. NOT NULL The column is not allowed to contain null values. NULL The column is allowed to contain null values. This is the default. This clause is only provided for compatibility with non-standard SQL databases. Its use is discouraged in new applications. server_name The name of an existing server for the foreign table. OPTIONS ( option 'value' [, ...] ) Options to be associated with the new foreign table or one of its columns. The allowed option names and values are specific to each foreign data wrapper and are validated using the foreign-data wrapper's validator function. Duplicate option names are not allowed (although it's OK for a table option and a column option to have the same name). EXAMPLES
Create foreign table films with film_server: CREATE FOREIGN TABLE films ( code char(5) NOT NULL, title varchar(40) NOT NULL, did integer NOT NULL, date_prod date, kind varchar(10), len interval hour to minute ) SERVER film_server; COMPATIBILITY
The CREATE FOREIGN TABLE command largely conforms to the SQL standard; however, much as with CREATE TABLE, NULL constraints and zero-column foreign tables are permitted. SEE ALSO
