Hi,

I have a requirement, i want to diable "Sp_helptext" because i don't want user of the database to read the scripts that is written in the Database.

Any suggestions will be highly helpful.


Thanks
Jim

I know if you had done it the opposite way, where you granted the user or role minimum rights like db_datareader and db_datawriter, then you had to do GRANT VIEW ANY DEFINITION in order to give them the ability to see the definitions, which i think includes the successful use of sp_helptext.

try DENY VIEW ANY DEFINITION and see if that takes away that right.

Or create the procedures and functions using

WITH ENCRYPTION

will make it harder for people to read your code.

Heh... just make sure that you have clear copy of the code stashed away or you'll need to lookup how to break that encryption (which is why Peso said "make it harder" instead of "make it impossible").

I tried to use deny view. Still it is not working.

How i did is

- Logged in as Admin

- Went to the Database, Security folder-->Users--Selected the User-->Property-->Securable-->Add Securable-->I mentioned the object (Store Procedure) and denied the view.

Plz correct me if i'm wrong.
