Microsoft SQL Server Connection Properties

Microsoft SQL Server Connection Properties

Use a Microsoft SQL Server connection to access tables in a Microsoft SQL Server database.
The following table describes the Microsoft SQL Server connection properties:
Property
Description
User name
Database user name.
Password
Password for the user name.
Use Trusted Connection
Optional. When enabled, the Data Integration Service uses Windows authentication to access the Microsoft SQL Server database. The user name that starts the Data Integration Service must be a valid Windows user with access to the Microsoft SQL Server database.
Connection String for metadata access
Connection string to import physical data objects. Use the following connection string:
jdbc:informatica:sqlserver://<host>:<port>;databaseName=<dbname>
Connection String for data access
Connection string to preview data and run mappings. Enter
<ServerName>@<DBName>
Domain Name
Optional. Name of the domain where Microsoft SQL Server is running.
Packet Size
Required. Optimize the ODBC connection to Microsoft SQL Server. Increase the packet size to increase performance. Default is
0
.
Code Page
Database code page.
Owner Name
Name of the schema owner. Specify for connections to the profiling warehouse database or data object cache database.
Schema Name
Name of the schema in the database. Specify for connections to the profiling warehouse or data object cache database. You must specify the schema name for the profiling warehouse if the schema name is different from the database user name. You must specify the schema name for the data object cache database if the schema name is different from the database user name and you manage the cache with an external tool.
Environment SQL
Optional. Enter SQL commands to set the database environment when you connect to the database. The Data Integration Service executes the connection environment SQL each time it connects to the database.
Transaction SQL
Optional. Enter SQL commands to set the database environment when you connect to the database. The Data Integration Service executes the transaction environment SQL at the beginning of each transaction.
Retry Period
This property is reserved for future use.
SQL Identifier Character
The type of character used to identify special characters and reserved SQL keywords, such as WHERE. The Data Integration Service places the selected character around special characters and reserved SQL keywords. The Data Integration Service also uses this character for the Support Mixed-case Identifiers property.
Support Mixed-case Identifiers
When enabled, the Data Integration Service places identifier characters around table, view, schema, synonym, and column names when generating and executing SQL against these objects in the connection. Use if the objects have mixed-case or lowercase names. By default, this option is not selected.
When you use a Microsoft SQL Server connection to access tables in a Microsoft SQL Server database, the Developer tool does not display the synonyms for the tables.
