Setting Common Authentication Options

DbVisualizer lets you handle authentication in a manner that suits your balance between security and convenience.

Authentication settings in Connection Properties

Userid and password information is generally information that should be handled with great care. By default, DbVisualizer saves both the Database Userid and Database Password (encrypted) for each database connection. The default for SSH is to save the SSH Userid but not the SSH Password (or private key passphrase). You can change this behavior to fit your preferences.

You specify how to handle the Database Userid and Password in the Authentication category of the Properties tab.

The Require Userid and Require Password properties can be enabled to tell DbVisualizer to automatically prompt for userid and/or password when a connection is to be established if they are not specified for the connection. The following dialog is displayed if requiring both userid and password.
