DROP CONTRACT contract_name 
[ ; ]


The name of the contract to drop. Server, database, and schema names cannot be specified.

You cannot drop a contract if any services or conversation priorities refer to the contract.

When you drop a contract, Service Broker ends any existing conversations that use the contract with an error.

Permission for dropping a contract defaults to the owner of the contract, members of the db_ddladmin or db_owner fixed database roles, and members of the sysadmin fixed server role.

The following example removes the contract // from the database.

    [//] ;
