List all Usernames, Roles for all the databases.

By Shivaram Challa,

You can directly download the script from here: http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Attachment14561.aspx

Provided the link so that folks who are having Misc' characters issue can get this file and use it.

Description: This script generates a list of Usernames and the database Roles that the user belongs to in all the databases; with a couple of other useful information detailed below.

Other benefit: you can use this script to get the roles of ONE specific user in all the databases.

Directions of Use:

For All Users list: You can directly run this script in SQL Server Management studio

For a specific user:

1. Find this code /*and u.name like ''tester''*/

2. Uncomment the code

3. Replace the Name ''tester'' with the username you want to search on.

Resultset Explanation:

ServerName: Name of the server this script was executed on.
DBName: Database name that the user exists in.
Name: user name.
GroupName: Group/Database Role that the user is a part of.
LoginName: Actual login name, if this is null, Name is used to connect.

Tested: This script is tested on SQL Server 2005 standard edition with sp2 and the forum users were generous enough to test the script on SQL server 2000 and SQL Server 2008 and deemed the script working.
