Want to run T-SQL Job with as specific but I can't select the user

Heyas,

As the above title: Want to run T-SQL Job with as specific but I can't select the user.

Attached is a screenshot of what I mean.

I have created SQL user SQL_RG_MP_User and given the sysadmin permission but they don't appear on the list.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Thank you.

It's because you didn't give the Login explicit access to the database. You can use dbo instead.

Hi Vitor,

When I try to give the user explicit access EXEC sp_grantdbaccess 'SQL_RG_MP_User';  

I get the following error:

'SQL_RG_MP_User' is not a valid login or you do not have permission.

How do I resolve this?

Thank you.
Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
Like I said, you need the Login name and not the User name.
Check in the Security section for the Logins. Which one is mapped to the user database 'SQL_RG_MP_User'?

Hi Vitor,

Please see the attached pics. As far as I can tell SQL_RG_MP_User is the login name.

Unless I am misunderstanding something.

Than you.

The terminology and the picture you used in your main question really refers to database user.
Now these last pictures shows the Login but only with access to master and msdb databases. Which database is set for the job step?

Btw, why are you mapping credentials for a Resource Governor?
