How to list logins mapped to a database in SQL Server

26 May,2022 by Tom Collins

Question: I'd like to create a list of SQL Logins\users mapped to a database.  Do you have a script which will create this list?

Answer: This code uses the undocumented stored procedure sp_msloginmappings.  This script creates a temporary table , inserts the results - filtering on the database name and presents the results in a table. 


--Step 1 : Create temp tab;le
CREATE TABLE #tempMappings (
    LoginName nvarchar(1000),
    DBname nvarchar(1000),
    Username nvarchar(1000), 
    Alias nvarchar(1000)
--Step 2:Insert the sp_msloginmappings into the temp table
INSERT INTO #tempMappings
EXEC master..sp_msloginmappings 

--Step 3 : List the results . Filter as required
FROM   #tempMappings WHERE DBName = 'my_db'
ORDER BY DBname, username

--Step 4:  Manage cleanup of temp table
DROP TABLE #tempMappings
