Stairway to SQL Server Security Level 4: Permissions

A permission gives a principal access to an object to perform certain actions on or with the object. SQL Server has a mind-numbingly huge number of permissions that you can grant to a principal, and you can even deny or revoke those permissions. This sounds a bit complicated, but by the end of this stairway level you’ll understand how SQL Server permissions work and how you can exert very granular control over object creation, data access, and other types of actions on database and server objects.  Read more...

Issues Determining an Individual SQL Server User's Permissions

Recently I was supporting a third party application. It queries to determine what tables it has permissions to before it proceeds with the rest of its functionality. We had implemented permissions based on the best practice of creating roles, assigning the permissions to the roles, and then making the users members of the roles. The application was querying INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLE_PRIVILEGES and of course didn't find any permissions directly against the user in question. We ended up granting explicit permissions to the user so the application would work, but I'm more interested in the general case. How can I determine permissions for an individual user?  Read more...
