Listing Users and Their Roles in SQL Server

Hello everyone,

In this article, I will provide information about listing users and their roles in SQL Server.

In SQL Server, in some cases, we may want to list users and their roles.

You can easily do this with the help of the code below.

SELECT spU.name,
       MAX(   CASE
                  WHEN srm.role_principal_id = 3 THEN
                      1
              END
          ) AS sysadmin,
       MAX(   CASE
                  WHEN srm.role_principal_id = 4 THEN
                      1
              END
          ) AS securityadmin,
       MAX(   CASE
                  WHEN srm.role_principal_id = 5 THEN
                      1
              END
          ) AS serveradmin,
       MAX(   CASE
                  WHEN srm.role_principal_id = 6 THEN
                      1
              END
          ) AS setupadmin,
       MAX(   CASE
                  WHEN srm.role_principal_id = 7 THEN
                      1
              END
          ) AS processadmin,
       MAX(   CASE
                  WHEN srm.role_principal_id = 8 THEN
                      1
              END
          ) AS diskadmin,
       MAX(   CASE
                  WHEN srm.role_principal_id = 9 THEN
                      1
              END
          ) AS dbcreator,
       MAX(   CASE
                  WHEN srm.role_principal_id = 10 THEN
                      1
              END
          ) AS bulkadmin
FROM sys.server_principals AS spR
    JOIN sys.server_role_members AS srm
        ON spR.principal_id = srm.role_principal_id
    JOIN sys.server_principals AS spU
        ON srm.member_principal_id = spU.principal_id
WHERE spR.[type] = 'R'
GROUP BY spU.name;

When you run the code, you will get a result like the one below.
