Returns a row per remote-login mapping. This catalog view is used to map incoming local logins that claim to be coming from a corresponding server to an actual local login.
|Applies to: SQL Server (SQL Server 2008 through current version).|
|Column name||Data type||Description|
|server_id||int||ID of the server in sys.servers. This name is supplied by the connection from the "remote" server.|
|remote_name||sysname||Login name that the connection will supply to be mapped. If NULL, the login name that is specified in the connection is used.|
|local_principal_id||int||ID of the server principal to whom the login is mapped. If 0, the remote login is mapped to the login with the same name.|
|modify_date||datetime||Date the linked login was last changed.|
The visibility of the metadata in catalog views is limited to securables that a user either owns or on which the user has been granted some permission. For more information, see Metadata Visibility Configuration.
