Remove Hasura Data from a Database

Hasura saves two schemas in the database that you have designated to store metadata: hdb_catalog and hdb_views. These schemas store metadata and track the state of your database.

If you want to remove Hasura from this database, you can use the following commands to drop these schemas using either a database-management tool or the SQL editor - accessible in the sidebar of any table in the Hasura Console:

drop schema hdb_views cascade;
drop schema hdb_catalog cascade;
Designated metadata database

Note that the database used to store metadata is designated with the HASURA_GRAPHQL_METADATA_DATABASE_URL environment variable or --metadata-database-url startup flag. If this is not set, the metadata database will be the same as the database used for data.
