I have created a trigger to audit changes to table rows from my web application. My web application is using a single db user to do updates to the database. However, many different users can log in to the website and do the updates and inserts. Therefore, the db user will always be same but web users will be different

I want to have some way to capture the logged in user to the website who is making the changes to the rows so that I can audit the changes along with the web user that is making the changes.

Can someone please guide me how can I capture the web session in my sql trigger so that I know who is making the changes. Can I configure the web.config file so that the session info is also passed on to the sql server trigger or if there is some other way, please let me know

If you created another column either in the data table(s) or an audit table, and passed in the web user value - then you could save the information. Therefore treating the web user value like any other value.

Is there anyway to get the user information from web session without having to explicitly pass the user information? I read somewhere that we could use context_info, or app_name etc..but I dont know how to use these.

I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. [url=]Saudi Arabia Jobs[/url]Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, [url=]Jobs Portal[/url] it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one these days
