I would like to recompile my logon trigger using sp_recompile. But I can't figure out the syntax.

E.g. these don't work:

sp_recompile '[Tr_Logon]'

sp_recompile '[Tr_Logon]' ON ALL SERVER ;)
  • Is that a smiley inside your code block? Best to edit that, methinks. Commented Jul 24, 2015 at 17:25
  • @MichaelGreen Yes, because that syntax definitely won't work. Some fun is allowed ;) Commented Jul 24, 2015 at 19:33

I think I found it:

sp_refreshsqlmodule (Books Online)

Updates the metadata for the specified non-schema-bound stored procedure, user-defined function, view, DML trigger, database-level DDL trigger, or server-level DDL trigger in the current database.

EXEC sys.sp_refreshsqlmodule
    @name = 'ddl_trig_name',
    @namespace = 'SERVER_DDL_TRIGGER';
