DROP AUTHORIZATION

Be Careful Not To Drop Authorizations That Existing External Routines Use

If you drop an authorization object, any external routine defined using the name of that authorization object no longer works. The term external routine refers to any software written in a language such as C or C++ that is stored outside the database and can be called by a UDF, method, or stored procedure definition from within SQL.

To repair the problem, you must have the CREATE AUTHORIZATION privilege.
