Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help). Once you've done this:
  1. Go into SQL Server Management Studio;
  2. Open the SQL file you've just unzipped (you can press CTRL + O to do this); then
  3. Execute this script.

This will generate the database that you'll need to use in order to do this exercise (note that the database and script are only to be used for exercises published on this website, and may not be reused or distributed in any form without the prior written permission of Wise Owl).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Create a new project and model (perhaps you could use this exercise number to name it), importing three tables: tblFamily, tblProduct and tblPurchase.

Create two roles as follows:

Role Table Restrictions
Terrestrial Family The family name can not be Bird.
Airborne Family The family name must be Bird.

You should give your roles read access to the model:

The roles

What the roles should look like!

 

Finally, test each role:

Testing roles

Here's what you should see when you analyse the model in Excel using the Terrestrial role.

 

That's it!
