Returns the unquoted names of remote tables accessible through this connection. This should include views and temporary objects, but not all database backends (in particular RMariaDB and RMySQL) support this.

# S4 method for DatabaseConnectorConnection
dbListTables(conn, databaseSchema = NULL, ...)



A DBIConnection object, as returned by dbConnect().


The name of the database schema. See details for platform-specific details.


Not used



returns a character vector that enumerates all tables and views in the database. Tables added with dbWriteTable()

are part of the list. As soon a table is removed from the database, it is also removed from the list of database tables.

The same applies to temporary tables if supported by the database.

The returned names are suitable for quoting with dbQuoteIdentifier().


The databaseSchema argument is interpreted differently according to the different platforms: SQL Server and PDW: The databaseSchema schema should specify both the database and the schema, e.g. 'my_database.dbo'. Impala: the databaseSchema should specify the database. Oracle: The databaseSchema should specify the Oracle 'user'. All other : The databaseSchema should specify the schema.
