Syntax Conventions (Azure SQL Database)

CREATE USER user_name
    [ { { FOR | FROM }
        LOGIN login_name 
    [ WITH DEFAULT_SCHEMA = schema_name ]

This syntax diagram demonstrates the supported arguments in Microsoft Azure SQL Database.

Microsoft Azure SQL Database does not support the following arguments when using the CREATE USER statement.



If the CREATE USER statement is the only statement in a SQL batch, Microsoft Azure SQL Database supports the FOR | FROM LOGIN clause. If the CREATE USER statement is not the only statement in a SQL batch or is executed in dynamic SQL, the FOR | FROM LOGIN clause is not supported.

The user_name argument cannot contain a backslash (\) character.


When ran while connected to a federation member database, this command supports the following syntax:

CREATE USER user_name
The current implementation of Federations will be retired with Web and Business service tiers. Consider deploying custom sharding solutions to maximize scalability, flexibility, and performance. For more information about custom sharding, see Scaling Out Azure SQL Databases.

For a code example, see Managing Databases and Logins in Azure SQL Database. For more information about the arguments and the CREATE USER statement, see CREATE USER in SQL Server Books Online.

Requires ALTER ANY USER permission on the database.
