Hi All,

I am using a trigger to update a table based on data changes - which is working well - but as an improvement I would like to store the Windows Login "Domain\Username" - ie. WORLD\Fred.Bloggs

Just to keep the post live - I have answered my own question already.

DECLARE @CurrentLogon Char(50)
Set @CurrentLogon = SUSER_SNAME()

SELECT SUSER_SNAME()

That's assuming you use domain creds to log into SQL Server (domain authentication), otherwise it returns the SQL Server login.


My mantra: No loops! No CURSORs! No RBAR! Hoo-uh!

My thought question: Have you ever been told that your query runs too fast?

My advice:
INDEXing a poor-performing query is like putting sugar on cat food. Yeah, it probably tastes better but are you sure you want to eat it?
The path of least resistance can be a slippery slope. Take care that fixing your fixes of fixes doesn't snowball and end up costing you more than fixing the root cause would have in the first place.


Need to UNPIVOT? Why not CROSS APPLY VALUES instead?
Since random numbers are too important to be left to chance, let's generate some!
Learn to understand recursive CTEs by example.
Splitting strings based on patterns can be fast!

You should ORIGINAL_LOGIN() instead in case there is any impersonation going on.

Thanks Sean - I will give that a try - we do use interpersonate - as its an ERP system with security within the GUI rather than at the SQL end.
