In previous tutorials, it is assumed that you use the "sa" (System Administrator) login name to connect to your SQL Server. But that is not what a normal developer uses to connect to the server, since "sa" has the ALL permissions granted. You need to create new login names and grant less permissions to them, and give them to developers.

To create a new login name, you can use the "CREATE LOGIN" statement in a simple syntax like this:

CREATE LOGIN login_name WITH PASSWORD = 'password'

To run "CREATE LOGIN" statement, you need to connect to the server with a privileged login name like "sa". See the tutorial example below:

-- Login with 'sa'

-- Create new login names
CREATE LOGIN FYI_DBA WITH PASSWORD = 'ABD_IYF'
GO
Command(s) completed successfully.

CREATE LOGIN Fyi_Login WITH PASSWORD = 'IYF'
GO
