The SQL Swiss Army Knife #1 - Scripting Securables - Updated

  • Comments 6

EDIT (11-01-2013):  Fixed issue with generating all logins even when single database was chosen.
EDIT (17-05-2015): Fixed duplicate permissions scripted with Procedures/Functions/CLR; Extended object coverage.

Hello all,

I've recently joined the PFE team in Portugal, and one part of the job i like is giving something back to the community.
Whenever possible, i will be focusing my posts on SQL scripts that may help on everyday DBA tasks, something in the likes of a "SQL Swiss Army Knife".
According to BOL, SQL securables "are the resources to which the SQL Server Database Engine authorization system regulates access".

I've been using the following script as a "local machine" bit of a wider DR strategy for years, because you never know when you need to quickly review or restore permissions over scopes when they got "accidently" changed or deleted.
Its output may simply be saved onto a .sql file and will resemble this:


So, for my first post on Ezequiel, here is the script which I hope some of you will find useful.

These are the options available:

  • All users:
    EXEC usp_SecurCreation
  • One user, All DBs:
    EXEC usp_SecurCreation '<User>'
  • One user, One DB:
    EXEC usp_SecurCreation '<User>', '<DBName>'
  • All users, One DB:
    EXEC usp_SecurCreation NULL, '<DBName>'

Download here: usp_SecurCreation.sql

Until next time!

  • Hi Pedro,

    I ran the script but it wrongly assigns EXECUTE permissions to views defined with the Select attribute. It processes views as if they were stored procedures :-O


  • Thanks Ignacio,

    It's fixed now. Please try it and give some more feedback.



  • I've used it today. Thanks! :-)

  • awesome...can we also get permission at table level ?

  • You just saved few hours of my life!


  • Thumb up!
