Creates a SQL Server login.
This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature. Use CREATE LOGIN instead.
Applies to: SQL Server (SQL Server 2008 through current version).
sp_grantlogin calls CREATE LOGIN, which supports additional options. For information on creating SQL Server logins, see CREATE LOGIN (Transact-SQL)
sp_grantlogin cannot be executed within a user-defined transaction.
The following example uses CREATE LOGIN to create a SQL Server login for the Windows user Corporate\BobJ. This is the preferred method.
CREATE LOGIN [Corporate\BobJ] FROM WINDOWS; GO
