Does anyone have a function that i can use to determine if a specific user is a member of a specific ad group?

I'm going to pass a userid into a stored procedure and return one data set if a member of group 1 return another data set if a member of group 2.

SQL Server does not contain this information, but you can use is_member:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms186271.aspx

I e, SELECT is_member('domain\groupname')
Or:
If (SELECT is_member('domain\groupname')) = 1
BEGIN
  --T-SQL code to run when user is member of the domain group
END

Thanks martenrune -

i was hoping that someone has done something cool....i"m actually handling this way....

is_member won't work by itself because often i'm not looking for the current user.
ALTER procedure [dbo].[usp_CheckDomainAdmin] 

  @vch_User		varchar(255)	= 'user',
  @int_Member	int				= 0	OUTPUT


AS

execute as login = @vch_User

set @int_Member = (SELECT is_member('utmsa\domain admins'))

declare @output int

exec usp_CheckDomainAdmin  
	@vch_User = 'utmsa\law777',
	@int_MEmber = @output output

print @output

Open in new window
