I found how to list tables a role has permissions on. I found how to list all functions with arguments.

My question is: How to list all functions with arguments a role is allowed to execute?

You can use the has_function_privilege function for that:

SELECT p.pronamespace::regnamespace as schema,
       p.proname||'('||pg_get_function_arguments(p.oid)||')' as function
FROM pg_proc p 
WHERE has_function_privilege(p.oid, 'execute')
      AND p.pronamespace NOT IN ('pg_catalog'::regnamespace,

    Thank you. Now that I know (again) that I can use has_function_privilege, I just found another question asking the same: stackoverflow.com/questions/18769397/… Commented Apr 30, 2020 at 12:18
  • It works. Just two notes: 1) maybe the condition p.pronamespace <> 'information_schema'::regnamespace should be added to remove other general functions, and 2) there is an extra ; in your code after has_function_privilege(p.oid, 'execute') .
