I've searched around all over and haven't found a conclusive answer to this question.

I need a script that can give ALL permissions for an associated role.

Any thoughts, or is it even possible?

This gets me CLOSE - but I can't seem to flip it around and give the summary for roles, rather than users.

We came up with this, which seems to work:

SELECT DISTINCT rp.name, 
                ObjectType = rp.type_desc, 
                PermissionType = pm.class_desc, 
                pm.permission_name, 
                pm.state_desc, 
                ObjectType = CASE 
                               WHEN obj.type_desc IS NULL 
                                     OR obj.type_desc = 'SYSTEM_TABLE' THEN 
                               pm.class_desc 
                               ELSE obj.type_desc 
                             END, 
                [ObjectName] = Isnull(ss.name, Object_name(pm.major_id)) 
FROM   sys.database_principals rp 
       INNER JOIN sys.database_permissions pm 
               ON pm.grantee_principal_id = rp.principal_id 
       LEFT JOIN sys.schemas ss 
              ON pm.major_id = ss.schema_id 
       LEFT JOIN sys.objects obj 
              ON pm.[major_id] = obj.[object_id] 
WHERE  rp.type_desc = 'DATABASE_ROLE' 
       AND pm.class_desc <> 'DATABASE' 
ORDER  BY rp.name, 
          rp.type_desc, 
          pm.class_desc

This I think should do it, replace 'blah' with either your role name or a database user (note that built in roles don't show as having any permissions):

SELECT DB_NAME() AS 'DBName'
      ,p.[name] AS 'PrincipalName'
      ,p.[type_desc] AS 'PrincipalType'
      ,p2.[name] AS 'GrantedBy'
      ,dbp.[permission_name]
      ,dbp.[state_desc]
      ,so.[Name] AS 'ObjectName'
      ,so.[type_desc] AS 'ObjectType'
  FROM [sys].[database_permissions] dbp LEFT JOIN [sys].[objects] so
    ON dbp.[major_id] = so.[object_id] LEFT JOIN [sys].[database_principals] p
    ON dbp.[grantee_principal_id] = p.[principal_id] LEFT JOIN [sys].[database_principals] p2
    ON dbp.[grantor_principal_id] = p2.[principal_id]

WHERE p.[name] = 'blah'

kind of... it just doesn't seem to include the object name/type. For a particular role I'm looking at that has execute, and a couple other permissions on a schema, it shows null. Two rows show ObjectName being sysrowsets and ObjectType being SYSTEM_TABLE. –  elgabito Mar 7 '13 at 19:15

I cant find the reference, but very descriptive script(I have it in my repository for years now - very useful for auditing).

/*

Security Audit Report
1) List all access provisioned to a sql user or windows user/group directly 
2) List all access provisioned to a sql user or windows user/group through a database or application role
3) List all access provisioned to the public role

Columns Returned:
UserName        : SQL or Windows/Active Directory user cccount.  This could also be an Active Directory group.
UserType        : Value will be either 'SQL User' or 'Windows User'.  This reflects the type of user defined for the 
                  SQL Server user account.
DatabaseUserName: Name of the associated user as defined in the database user account.  The database user may not be the
                  same as the server user.
Role            : The role name.  This will be null if the associated permissions to the object are defined at directly
                  on the user account, otherwise this will be the name of the role that the user is a member of.
PermissionType  : Type of permissions the user/role has on an object. Examples could include CONNECT, EXECUTE, SELECT
                  DELETE, INSERT, ALTER, CONTROL, TAKE OWNERSHIP, VIEW DEFINITION, etc.
                  This value may not be populated for all roles.  Some built in roles have implicit permission
                  definitions.
PermissionState : Reflects the state of the permission type, examples could include GRANT, DENY, etc.
                  This value may not be populated for all roles.  Some built in roles have implicit permission
                  definitions.
ObjectType      : Type of object the user/role is assigned permissions on.  Examples could include USER_TABLE, 
                  SQL_SCALAR_FUNCTION, SQL_INLINE_TABLE_VALUED_FUNCTION, SQL_STORED_PROCEDURE, VIEW, etc.   
                  This value may not be populated for all roles.  Some built in roles have implicit permission
                  definitions.          
ObjectName      : Name of the object that the user/role is assigned permissions on.  
                  This value may not be populated for all roles.  Some built in roles have implicit permission
                  definitions.
ColumnName      : Name of the column of the object that the user/role is assigned permissions on. This value
                  is only populated if the object is a table, view or a table value function.
