Hi Experts,

Here is my table:
Users (UserId, ApplicationId, UserName...)

I want the username to be unique by ApplicationId when I insert or update.
Can I create a unique key for the username to raise an error on insert or update ? If so, how can I limit the key to check a unique username by ApplicationId and not for  all the table ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

You could add a new non-clustered index, including both fields (ApplicationId, UserName) and check the unique box.

Or with SQL:

CREATE UNIQUE NONCLUSTERED INDEX [idx_Application_UserName] ON [dbo].[Users]
(
      [ApplicationId] ASC,
      [UserName] ASC
) ON [PRIMARY]
