DROP APPLICATION ROLE (Transact-SQL)
Removes an application role from the current database.
DROP APPLICATION ROLE rolename
Specifies the name of the application role to be dropped.
If the application role owns any securables it cannot be dropped. Before dropping an application role that owns securables, you must first transfer ownership of the securables, or drop them.
In SQL Server 2005 the behavior of schemas is changed from the behavior in earlier versions of SQL Server. Code that assumes that schemas are equivalent to database users may not return correct results. Old catalog views, including sysobjects, should not be used in a database in which any of the following DDL statements has ever been used: CREATE SCHEMA, ALTER SCHEMA, DROP SCHEMA, CREATE USER, ALTER USER, DROP USER, CREATE ROLE, ALTER ROLE, DROP ROLE, CREATE APPROLE, ALTER APPROLE, DROP APPROLE, ALTER AUTHORIZATION. In a database in which any of these statements has ever been used, you must use the new catalog views. The new catalog views take into account the separation of principals and schemas that is introduced in SQL Server 2005. For more information about catalog views, see Catalog Views (Transact-SQL).
Requires ALTER ANY APPLICATION ROLE permission on the database.
