Name

ST_SetBandPath — Update the external path and band number of an out-db band

Synopsis

raster ST_SetBandPath(raster rast, integer band, text outdbpath, integer outdbindex, boolean force=false);

Description

Updates an out-db band's external raster file path and external band number.

[Note]

If force is set to true, no tests are done to ensure compatibility (e.g. alignment, pixel support) between the external raster file and the PostGIS raster. This mode is intended for file system changes where the external raster resides.

[Note]

Internally, this method replaces the PostGIS raster's band at index band with a new band instead of updating the existing path information.

Availability: 2.5.0
