Reference: Delete Statement

With delete, you can delete rows of a table.

Usage example:

delete from orders
where status = 'canceled';

We recommend always specifying a where clause for delete statements. If you want to delete all rows of a table, consider using truncate instead.

Returning Deleted Rows

Delete queries are similar in their expressiveness to read-only select queries. You can use arbitrary CTEs in a with clause, and you can specify additional tables to be joined in a using clause. This can be combined with a returning clause to get data out of the database exactly once, while simultaneously enriching it with related data.

The following example extracts pending notifications from a database table, and returns them combined with their corresponding channel information.

delete from pending_notifications n
using channels c
where n.reciever_id = $1
  and n.channel_id =
returning *;
