Is the name of the database user to be removed. name is a sysname with no default. name can be the name of a server login, a Windows login, or a Windows group, and must exist in the current database.

When the database user is removed, the permissions and aliases that depend on the user are also removed.

sp_revokedbaccess can remove only database users from the current database. Before removing a database user that owns objects in the current database, you must either transfer ownership of the objects or drop them from the database. For more information, see ALTER AUTHORIZATION (Transact-SQL).

sp_revokedbaccess cannot be executed within a user-defined transaction.

Requires ALTER ANY USER permission on the database.

The following example removes the database user mapped to Edmonds\LolanSo from the current database.

EXEC sp_revokedbaccess 'Edmonds\LolanSo';
GO
