Application roles for multiple databases in SQL Server 2008 R2
Posted on 2011-03-14
We want to use application roles in MS SQL2008R2 to access multiple databases through an application. Microsoft solution is we assign appropriate permission to 'guest' database role in order to access more than one database. Are there any other methods of accessing multiple databases through a single application using the application roles?
We would not like to use 'guest' because the application role will have dbo access and I suppose, in order to access multiple DBs via application role, we will have to give dbo access to ‘guest’ user on DBs which is a no no.
