How to find a SQL schema owner name

23 August,2018 by Tom Collins

Question: How can I find the owner of a SQL Server schema ?   I want o find the owner through a t-sql solultion , rather than looking through the GUI. 

Answer: To find a schema owner you can use either sys.schema view or the information_schema.schemata. Since SQL 2005,  information_schema.schemata has come into line with sys.schema.     information_schema.schemata returns schemas just from the current database. 

 Find examples of the twp approaches below. If you're using the sys.schemas method, you'll need to use the schema_name() and user_name() functions to extract the names. 


use msdb
select schema_name(schema_id) as schemanames,
user_name(s.principal_id) as usernames 
from sys.schemas As s

SELECT schema_name, schema_owner
FROM information_schema.schemata
