Hi,

We're building a new GIS environment on Azure using Azure SQL databases - PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service).

Now we have found that the user "sde" has no rights to disconnect open connections (arcpy.DisconnectUser (workspace, "ALL")).

According to the online documentation, the user "sde" needs the role "processadmin":
https://pro.arcgis.com/de/pro-app/help/data/geodatabases/manage-sql-server/manage-connections-sqlserver.htm
"To disconnect users, they must be members of the specified processadmin server role."

However, there are no server roles in Azure SQL (PaaS).


Can anybody tell me how I can kill open connections in Azure (for example, for a full compress)?

Thanks, Andrea

Thank you for reaching out, there are some differences with an Azure SQL database and a typical SQL Server database. One of those functional differences is the ability to drop users from the Geodatabase Administration window.
