SDU Tools: Script User Defined Database Role Permissions in SQL Server

As part of our free SDU Tools for developers and DBAs, we have many scripting functions. SQL Server allows you to create your own database roles, and generally, you should do this instead of using the fixed database roles like db_owner, or db_datareader and db_datawriter, as it lets you allocate just the required permissions. To allow scripting out the permissions assigned to these roles, we've added a tool called ScriptUserDefinedDatabaseRolePermissions.

It's a stored procedure (as it has to change databases) and takes a single parameter: @DatabaseName (sysname) as the name of the database whose roles you want to script.

You can use our tools as a set or as a great example of how to write functions like these.
