Created new user is disabled

I’ve created a new SQL user along with a new role in our warehouse db project using Visual Studio 2012.

CREATE LOGIN [newuser] WITHPASSWORD='{{ RANDOM PASSWORD }}’,DEFAULT_DATABASE=[Database]
GO

CREATE USER [newuser] FORLOGIN [newuser] WITHDEFAULT_SCHEMA=[dbo]

GO

ALTER ROLE [newrole] ADD MEMBER [newuser]

GO

 

Problem is, the user is disabled. When you do it manually via SQL Management Studio, it’s enabled and working. Manually enabling the account doesn’t allow it connect either. A quick Google revealed:

Bingo. Appears I need to add the following to the end of the script:

 GRANT CONNECT TO [newuser]
