Hi,

I am trying to get a SQL script to list out all the users for a database.  Please let me know the best way to export the security user information.

Try this - returns users for the db in your current connection:
SELECT * FROM sys.database_principals

Open in new window

Yes, relevant to your current database connection.  For example, if you open a connection on your sql server to database "test_db" and run that command, it will give you all the defined users to "test_db".

;with ServerPermsAndRoles as
(
    select
        spr.name as principal_name,
        spr.type_desc as principal_type,
        spm.permission_name collate SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS as security_entity,
        'permission' as security_type,
        spm.state_desc
    from sys.server_principals spr
    inner join sys.server_permissions spm
    on spr.principal_id = spm.grantee_principal_id
    where spr.type in ('s', 'u')

    union all

    select
        sp.name as principal_name,
        sp.type_desc as principal_type,
        spr.name as security_entity,
        'role membership' as security_type,
        null as state_desc
    from sys.server_principals sp
    inner join sys.server_role_members srm
    on sp.principal_id = srm.member_principal_id
    inner join sys.server_principals spr
    on srm.role_principal_id = spr.principal_id
    where sp.type in ('s', 'u')
)
select *
from ServerPermsAndRoles
order by principal_name

Open in new window


Basically what it does it gets the permissions granted and denied, and unions it with the role membership. It should give you a brief look on the security for server logins.
