    Dropping Apache Iceberg Tables

    For Amazon S3 data sources, the DROP TABLE command logically removes a table from the source and physically removes all files associated with the table. After the table is dropped, it is permanently deleted and cannot be restored.

    For Amazon Glue data sources, the DROP TABLE command removes a table from the catalog. The datafiles are not deleted from the warehouse.

    Syntax
    DROP TABLE <table_path>.<table_name>
    

    Parameters

    <table_path>

    String

    The path in which the table is located.


    <table_name>

    String

    The name of the table that you want to drop.
