Fixed database roles are defined at the database level and exist in each database. You cannot add, delete or modify fixed database roles. You can only add users as a member of a fixed database role.

There are nine fixed database roles:


db_owner
db_accessadmin
db_datareader
db_datawriter
db_ddladmin
db_securityadmin
db_backupoperator
db_denydatareader
db_denydatawriter

The members of db_owner database role can perform any activity in the database.

The members of db_accessadmin database role can add or remove Windows NT groups, users or SQL Server users in the database.

The members of db_datareader database role can see any data from all user tables in the database.

The members of db_datawriter database role can add, change, or delete data from all user tables in the database.

The members of db_ddladmin database role can make any data definition language commands in the database.

The members of db_securityadmin database role can manage statement and object permissions in the database.

The members of db_backupoperator database role can back up the database.

The members of db_denydatareader database role can deny permission to select data in the database.

The members of db_denydatawriter database role can deny permission to change data in the database.

Note. To add a security account as a member of an existing SQL Server database role in the current database, you can use the sp_addrolemember system stored procedure.

OK- So would the following be accurate:

db_owner/db_ddladmin  can see all objects in SSMS
db_accessadmin/db_securityadmin  can see logins and users only
db_datareader/db_datawriter/db_denydatareader/db_denydatawriter  will see all user tables
db_backupoperator can see only databases
