sys.fn_translate_permissions ( level , perms )

level

Is the kind of securable to which the permission is applied. level is nvarchar(60).

perms

Is a bitmask that is returned in the permissions column. perms is varbinary(16).

table

The value returned in the permissions column of a SQL Trace is an integer representation of a bitmask used by SQL Server to calculate effective permissions. Each of the 25 kinds of securables has its own set of permissions with corresponding numerical values. sys.fn_translate_permissions translates this bitmask into a table of permissions names.

Requires membership in the public role.

The following query uses sys.fn_builtin_permissions to display the permissions that apply to certificates, and then uses sys.fn_translate_permissions to return the results of the permissions bitmask.

SELECT * FROM sys.fn_builtin_permissions('CERTIFICATE');
SELECT '0001' AS Input, * FROM sys.fn_translate_permissions('CERTIFICATE', 0001);
SELECT '0010' AS Input, * FROM sys.fn_translate_permissions('CERTIFICATE', 0010);
SELECT '0011' AS Input, * FROM sys.fn_translate_permissions('CERTIFICATE', 0011);
