Granting Access and Binding Defaults when recreating SQL Tables: a follow up

In his most recent article, Granting Access and Binding Defaults when recreating SQL Tables, my good friend, David Musgrave, points out how to drop and re-create a Microsoft Dynamics GP object with the SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) database object scripting capabilities.

His article overall addresses issues with objects not being properly upgraded from previous releases of Microsoft Dynamics GP to the version you are trying to upgrade to, and how to deal with these issue, so please read the articles as they contain valuable upgrade tips.

However, in his article, David points out that SSMS does not generate the object permissions and bindings necessary, hence the reason for the script he created and attached to his article. The bottom line is, these are configurable settings under SSMS's SQL Server Object Explorer options. To activate scripting of permissions and bindings in SSMS, follow these steps:

1. Open SSMS and go to the Tools | Options menu. This will open the Options window. Locate the SQL Server Object Explorer options and expand, then highlight Scripting to activate all scripting options.

2. Under Object Scripting Options, change Script Permissions to True.

3. Under Table and view options, change Script bound defaults and rules to True.

4. Click Ok to acknowledge all changes and exit the Options window.

Now let's test this... if we choose to script the SOP10110 table referenced in the sample script provided by David in his article, the following are the results:

USE [TWO]
GO

IF  EXISTS (SELECT * FROM sys.check_constraints WHERE object_id = OBJECT_ID(N'[dbo].[CK__SOP10110__ENDDAT__41320FDC]') AND parent_object_id = OBJECT_ID(N'[dbo].[SOP10110]'))
ALTER TABLE [dbo].[SOP10110] DROP CONSTRAINT [CK__SOP10110__ENDDAT__41320FDC]
GO

IF  EXISTS (SELECT * FROM sys.check_constraints WHERE object_id = OBJECT_ID(N'[dbo].[CK__SOP10110__STRTDA__42263415]') AND parent_object_id = OBJECT_ID(N'[dbo].[SOP10110]'))

GO

Note that the name of your constraints may be different, however note that all permissions are granted to the DYNGRP role and that all defaults are properly binded for each currency, date, char, and integer data types.

As usual and if nothing else, you now have 2 methods of dropping and creating SQL Server objects, granting permissions and binding defaults.

Until next post!
