Recently I got an email where my client asked if I know a way to know to which database the user has access. Well, it is pretty straightforward to know with the help of function HAS_DBACCESS. This is a very interesting function and it helps us to list databases where User Has DB Access. Let us see the example.
Here is the script which you can run to know to which database you have access. Now the function HAS_DBACCESS returns 1 if the user has access to the database, otherwise, it will return as 0. If you see value NULL, that means the database name passed to the function is invalid.
Has DB Access
SELECT name AS DatabaseName, HAS_DBACCESS(name) AS HasDBAccess FROM sys.databases WHERE HAS_DBACCESS(name) = 1
