Drop a user-defined type (UDT)

Drop a UDT that is no longer required. All data stored in the UDT will also be deleted.

If the UDT is used in another database object, such as a table, the UDT must be dropped from the other object before it can be dropped.


Drop a UDT named race in the keyspace cycling:

DROP TABLE IF EXISTS cycling.cyclist_races;
