Connects to the Database using the Windows authentication method when the Database engine is SQL Server or Oracle.


No DBMS authentication is used to connect to the Database.
Yes Windows authentication is used to connect to the Database. This is the default value.

Generators: .NET


When the value is Yes, the programs do not require a username and password to connect to the DBMS.

A connection is automatically established (by the DBMS) through the user logged on to the operating system.

For Web applications in particular, the value "Yes" will take the default user used to run web objects (for example, in IIS the user is known as IUSR_MASTER). It must have access rights to the database; otherwise, another username must be configured with the necessary rights.

If the value is No, the programs require a username and password to establish a connection with the DBMS. To this end, the username and password dialog is enabled in the DBMS Options. You will have to enter a valid username previously defined at the database level.
