I have a number of databases on a sql server 2017 instance.
For most databases i have been able to grant a user access to view the database tables in SSMS and run read queries (code below).
CREATE LOGIN [myLogin] FROM WINDOWS WITH DEFAULT_DATABASE=[master]
CREATE USER [myLogin] FOR LOGIN [myLogin]
ALTER ROLE [db_datareader] ADD MEMBER [myLogin]
GRANT VIEW ANY DEFINITION TO [myLogin]
I have two databases however where this is not working. The user cannot see the tables. they can run select queries.
I tried going into the user properties and granting view definition to each table in the database, but this also did not work.
These databases are compatibility level 130, in case its useful to know.
Im unsure what else to try here and would appreciate some expertise. thank you!
For reference, there has already been some troubleshooting on this over on Stack Overflow, where there is some additional information in the comments.
Excuse my typos and sometimes awful grammar. My fingers work faster than my brain does.
did you try granting the account "view definition" on these specific databases ?
Using "any database" should indeed cover it all, but ...
create user ...
GRANT view definition TO [the account]
