  • Multiple SQL users

    Is it possible to create multiple users in SQL server with different levels of access?

    Re: Multiple SQL users

    Yeap, here you go...

    Role types
    Server roles are maintained by the database administrator (DBA) and apply to the entire server, not an individual database file. The public role sets the basic default permissions for all users. Every user thatís added to SQL Server is automatically assigned to the public roleóyou donít need to do anything. Database roles are applied to an individual database.

    Predefined database roles
    You may need to create your own, but you have access to several predefined database roles:

    db_owner: Members have full access.
    db_accessadmin: Members can manage Windows groups and SQL Server logins.
    db_datareader: Members can read all data.
    db_datawriter: Members can add, delete, or modify data in the tables.
    db_ddladmin: Members can run dynamic-link library (DLL) statements.
    db_securityadmin: Members can modify role membership and manage permissions.
    db_bckupoperator: Members can back up the database.
    db_denydatareader: Members canít view data within the database.
    db_denydatawriter: Members canít change or delete data in tables or views.

    Fixed roles
    The fixed server roles are applied serverwide, and there are several predefined server roles:

    SysAdmin: Any member can perform any action on the server.
    ServerAdmin: Any member can set configuration options on the server.
    SetupAdmin: Any member can manage linked servers and SQL Server startup options and tasks.
    Security Admin: Any member can manage server security.
    ProcessAdmin: Any member can kill processes running on SQL Server.
    DbCreator: Any member can create, alter, drop, and restore databases.
    DiskAdmin: Any member can manage SQL Server disk files.
    BulkAdmin: Any member can run the bulk insert command.

      Please note that we do not currently support creation of additional users with MySQL or MS SQL databases. But this would be a great idea for if you would like to add it.
