permission

Is the name of a permission. The valid mappings of permissions to securables are described in the "Remarks" section, later in this topic.

Specifies the full-text catalog on which the permission is being granted. The scope qualifier :: is required.

ON FULLTEXT STOPLIST ::full-text_stoplist_name

Specifies the full-text stoplist on which the permission is being granted. The scope qualifier :: is required.

database_principal

Specifies the principal to which the permission is being granted. One of the following:

  • database user

  • database role

  • application role

  • database user mapped to a Windows login

  • database user mapped to a Windows group

  • database user mapped to an asymmetric key

  • database user not mapped to a server principal.

GRANT OPTION

Indicates that the principal will also be given the ability to grant the specified permission to other principals.

AS granting_principal

Specifies a principal from which the principal executing this query derives its right to grant the permission. One of the following:

  • database user

  • database role

  • application role

  • database user mapped to a Windows login

  • database user mapped to a Windows group

FULLTEXT CATALOG Permissions

A full-text catalog is a database-level securable contained by the database that is its parent in the permissions hierarchy. The most specific and limited permissions that can be granted on a full-text catalog are listed in the following table, together with the more general permissions that include them by implication.

FULLTEXT STOPLIST Permissions

A full-text stoplist is a database-level securable contained by the database that is its parent in the permissions hierarchy. The most specific and limited permissions that can be granted on a full-text stoplist are listed in the following table, together with the more general permissions that include them by implication.

VIEW DEFINITION

The grantor (or the principal specified with the AS option) must have either the permission itself with GRANT OPTION, or a higher permission that implies the permission being granted.

If using the AS option, these additional requirements apply.

AS granting_principal

Additional permission required

Database user

IMPERSONATE permission on the user, membership in the db_securityadmin fixed database role, membership in the db_owner fixed database role, or membership in the sysadmin fixed server role.

Database user mapped to a Windows login

IMPERSONATE permission on the user, membership in the db_securityadmin fixed database role, membership in the db_owner fixed database role, or membership in the sysadmin fixed server role.

Database user mapped to a Windows group

Membership in the Windows group, membership in the db_securityadmin fixed database role, membership in the db_owner fixed database role, or membership in the sysadmin fixed server role.

Database user mapped to a certificate

Membership in the db_securityadmin fixed database role, membership in the db_owner fixed database role, or membership in the sysadmin fixed server role.

Database user mapped to an asymmetric key

Membership in the db_securityadmin fixed database role, membership in the db_owner fixed database role, or membership in the sysadmin fixed server role.

Database user not mapped to any server principal

IMPERSONATE permission on the user, membership in the db_securityadmin fixed database role, membership in the db_owner fixed database role, or membership in the sysadmin fixed server role.

Database role

ALTER permission on the role, membership in the db_securityadmin fixed database role, membership in the db_owner fixed database role, or membership in the sysadmin fixed server role.

Application role

ALTER permission on the role, membership in the db_securityadmin fixed database role, membership in the db_owner fixed database role, or membership in the sysadmin fixed server role.

Object owners can grant permissions on the objects they own. Principals with CONTROL permission on a securable can grant permission on that securable.

Grantees of CONTROL SERVER permission, such as members of the sysadmin fixed server role, can grant any permission on any securable in the server. Grantees of CONTROL permission on a database, such as members of the db_owner fixed database role, can grant any permission on any securable in the database. Grantees of CONTROL permission on a schema can grant any permission on any object within the schema.

A. Granting permissions to a full-text catalog

The following example grants Ted the CONTROL permission on the full-text catalog ProductCatalog.

GRANT CONTROL
    ON FULLTEXT CATALOG :: ProductCatalog
    TO Ted ;

B. Granting permissions to a stoplist

The following example grants Mary the VIEW DEFINITION permission on the full-text stoplist ProductStoplist.

GRANT VIEW DEFINITION
    ON FULLTEXT STOPLIST :: ProductStoplist
    TO Mary ;
