How to add
db_owner role to newly created MSSQL users?
Starting from Plesk version 12, MSSQL users created through Plesk interface are not provided with
db_owner role for security reasons.
In order to change this behavior for server wide perform the following steps:
Connect to the server via RDP;
Open the file
panel.inilocated in the folder
%plesk_dir%admin\conf\(Just paste this path in Windows Explorer to open) in any text editor.
Note: If the
panel.inifile does not exist, create it by copying the sample configuration file
Add the following settings to the
features.roles.mssql.readWrite = db_owner,db_datareader,db_datawriter,db_backupoperator,db_ddladmin
Run the following CMD command to apply the changes to all the MSSQL servers:
C:\> "%plesk_cli%\repair.exe" --update-mssql-users-permissions
Note: the existing users will obtain a new role as well.
Refer to the documentation Database User Roles and Permissions for more details.
For one particular database it's possible to assign
db_owner role via Microsoft SQL Management Studio Express:
- Open Microsoft SQL Management Studio Express
- Navigate to Security > Logins > Right-click the db user and select Properties
- In properties go to User Mappings
- Click on the database and check that the options db_owner and Public are selected.
