Can I on purpose lock the admin out of an Azure SQLDB (as admin)

As this may sound as a strange question on first sight. The goal is to only have sql users with data reader & writer rights on the database once the database is setup. Afterwards No accounts should exist anymore that have more rights than Reading & writing to the existing table structure. This behaviour should be irreversible.


That is not possible. From books online:

The database user corresponding to the Server admin login cannot be altered or dropped.

Reference: Controlling and granting database access to SQL Database and SQL Data Warehouse
