[ @name_in_db = ] 'name'

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 you specify a Windows login or Windows group, specify the name by which it is known in the 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).

p_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';
