How Do I Hide Databases From External Users?

Jan 31, 2003

I am going to give user rights for an external user to connect to my SQL Server via Client Network Utility.

Atlough I have given user permissions to only access one database and not the whole list, how do I make sure that they cannot see all the other databases on my SQL Server?

I have 20 instances of databases on my SQL Server and ideally I would like to give 20 different people access - but each of them when they enter my SQL Server, should not even know that the other databases exist.

Hide System Tables From Users?

Mar 7, 2008

How can I hide the system tables (sys and INFORMATION_SCHEMA) from users? I am not talking about Management Studio. We have users who access the database with ODBC and I do not want them to see all these system tables.

I have created a Hide_System_Tables role and added users to it. I have tried denying all the permissions to this role, but they still see it. Oddly enough, in the INFORMATION_SCHEMA permissions, it shows access from grantors of INFORMATION_SCHEMA and dbo. I cannot deny permission for the entries with dbo as grantor.

Does anyone have any suggestions on where I have to go to remove all the places that give users access to these tables?

DTS Data Transform Task: How To Hide DB And Schema Names?

Mar 25, 2008

Hi All,

I'm stuck up with a strange problem.
When i try to setup a Transform Data task in DTS, the table drop down shows fully qualified table name.

i.e. <database name>.<schema name>.<table name>

as you can see in the attached screenshot. With this I cant see the full table name and am not able to make the correct selection.

Where can i change the properties so that it displays only the table name?

Setting Up Read-only Users. How To Hide Sys. Tables. SQL SERVER 2005

Oct 16, 2006

I need to set up 1 new user in SQL Server 2005 to be able to read specific tables in a db (db1).

The user will connect from MS access using odbc links (SQL Native client ot SQL Server driver)

I've tried to set up one and once logged on from the user workstation, I can only see sys. tables and INFORMATION_SCHEMA tables.
None of the required db1 tables appear.

under Security/Logins I've created User1:
SQL Server auth. with password
default db = db1
server_roles = none
user mapping = map, db1, user1,dbo
securables = none
status = grant, enabled

on the access db, the odbc link was set up with default db = db1

Why can't I see any of the db1 tables?

How can I restrict access to the sys. tables?

Thank you

SQL Security :: Can Hide Databases From Users Who Don't Have Access In Management Studio

Apr 21, 2015

I have a client who would like to access his database via SQL Server Management Studio. I created a login for him. This login has access only to his database on the server (I set this up using the user mapping), the Securables has Connect to SQL checked (otherwise he won't see his database).  When I test this login, he is able to see all the other databases on the server, though when he clicks on the ones he doesn't have access to, it will tell him that he can't access that database.  He can access his database alright.  My question is, can I hide all the other databases from him, and only display that only database he has access to?  I have tried many different ways, I can't seem to be able to do so.

SQL Tools :: Can Make SSMS Parse Command Resolve Object Names?

Jul 29, 2010

When I run the parse command in SSMS, it merely does a syntax check.  When I run through the export data wizard by right clicking on a table, it allows a query as the data source.  When I click on the parse button in the window that accepts that query, it resolves object names and notifies me of invalid ones.  I'd really like the same thing to happen when I parse in SSMS...

Difference Between Database -- &&> Users And Security --&&> Users

Nov 28, 2006

Hi Team,

In SQL Enterprise Manager, when we expand "Database -->Users", we see the

users there. When we expand "Security --> logins" we see the same users there.

Can you differentiate these two.

SQL Security :: Users Are Able To Login To Server Without Any Login Names Or Being Part Of A Group

Jun 5, 2015

I have a server that has 20 databases . I have tested with few users with different level of access and all of them were able to connect to the server and also see, select, update , delete from a particular database which is kind of weird because they do not have a user login associated or mapped to that database. I checked and no user is part of any group in AD that would give them permission to connect . I need a query that would find the permission path of a user. I already queried with xp_logininfo but I am not getting any thing.

Hide Database Design

Jan 7, 2007


I wanted to see if Microsoft was going to address this problem

We as developers want to hide our database design (SQL Express DB)

We dont want to rely on the user rights settings to secure the design

Most of our clients have admin access which means that they can see the db design

We are happy for the design to be available on the server as change control should be given only on the server

I am perplexed how this hasnt been addressed

Your reply is appreciated

Restore Of Database Backup To Another Database Makes Users DBO

May 7, 1999

Anybody figure a way around this:

In a development server you take a backup and you want to move the entire database to a production server. The production server does not contain the database, users, or logins in master.

When you restore the backup to production in 7.0, the users get moved to DBO because the logins do not exist and then you cannot delete them.

We are having to drop the users from the database on development, back up the database and restore it to production, then recreate the users on production.

This is bogus and did not happen in 6.5 because of the aliases.

Anybody come up with a better way?

Sql Database Names?

Feb 2, 2006

just starting with sql server, thru the sql express edition, before i get to far wondering if it is ok to use the same database names, specifically the ASPNetDB.mdf in different web applications, or will this cause problems down the line,

ie will have different web site applications running on IIS and want to use the aspnet_regsl wizard,

also wondering if this has any implicaitons when publishing web application to web servers, are any of the local sql express server settings passed on to the web host provider, read about machine.config and if i understand i should put all the settings in the web.config file via the VS20005 ide.

also will it cause any problem inside the sql express magement console,

Spaces In SQL 7 Database Names

Mar 7, 2000

Hey all,

Hope I can get some help here.

Have a view that has to reference a table in another database on the same server. This isn't the problem. I am just using Databasename..tablename in the from statement. Get the results required in testing.

The problem is that in production the table name has a space character. i.e. 'accounting info' would be the table name. I have not been able to figure out the proper syntax to capture this properly to reference in the from statement.

I have tried enclosing the name in ' ', " ", [], (), {} and just about every combination I can come up with.

Any help in this would be great, and changing the databse name isn't an option at this time.

Integration Services :: Chinese Names Export To CSV - Garbled Names

Aug 11, 2015

As part if a recent requirement I have to export Chinese/Singaporean names in a CSV file. The data in the tables is a NVARCHAR(256).

I am using a FlatFile Connection manager where all the present columns from the table are exported as NVARCHARs. My understanding was that the Chinese/Singaporean names would blend seamlessly with NVARCHARs in place. But, they get garbled when pushed to the CSV.

Here is the connection manager setup

There are a lot of suggestions of fixing this by copying/pasting to a notepad file and changing the formatting... But I cant do that since the file is generated using a schedules SSIS package. How can I tweak the process to fix the issue?

Getting Table Names From AdventureWorks Database

Apr 24, 2008

I have ran into a problem when i'm getting table names in c#.
I have tried the sql command:
select name from sysobjects where type='U' order by name
So it returns the names without a problem. But when I try to access to some tables using their names (to retrieve the columns) I sometimes get the error "Invalid object name" following by the name of the table.
So I realized the if the table was not under dbo user then i would get this error.
for example: "select name from ContactCreditCard"
 gives me error because in database management tool it is shown like this: Sales.ContactCreditCard
How can i fix this problem? How to get that prefix of the tables?
Thank you,
