Logins Collection

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The Logins collection contains Login objects that reference login records that form one part of Microsoft SQL Server security.

SQL-DMO object model that shows the current object



With the Logins collection, you can:

  • Create SQL Server login records used for SQL Server Authentication or used by Windows Authentication for security account identification.

  • Remove login records, disabling SQL Server Authentication for the login or removing configured behavior for a Windows security account.

For more information about creating SQL Server login records using the Login object and Loginscollection, see Login Object.

To remove a login record

  • Use the Remove method of the Logins collection, as in:


When using the Item or Remove method, the Logins collection supports member identification using either name or ordinal reference syntax. For example:

Set oLogin = oSQLServer.Logins("somebody")


Set oLogin = oSQLServer.Logins(1)


Creating or removing SQL Server logins by using the Logins collection requires appropriate privilege. The SQL Server login used for SQLServer object connection must be a member of the fixed role securityadmin or a role with greater privilege.
