Connection to Azure MSSQL ODBC

If you do not have the MSSQL Server NATIVE SRV, MSSQL Server NATIVE SRV PDO and MSSQL Server ODBC drivers enabled, check below our documentation on how to enable both in Scriptcase for connection.

ATTENTION: If you do not have an Azure MSSQL Server base created, check how to create it by clicking here.

Creating the DSN for connection

To connect to the MSSQL Server ODBC Driver, you need to configure a System DSN. Follow the steps described below to perform this configuration.

ATTENTION: ODBC must be created on the same server where ScriptCase is installed.

1 - Access your ODBC Data Source Manager and select according to your architecture. We will select the x64 version:

Gerenciador ODBC

2 - When entering the ODBC Data Sources Administrator, select the DSN System tab and click on _Add to create your connection to your Database.

Criando DSN

3 - After that, it is necessary to select the Driver to connect to the MSSQL Server. Select the Driver: ODBC Driver 11 for SQL Server.

Selecionando Driver ODBC

4 - Now, you need to define the name of the DSN, the description and the database connection server.

Nomeando DSN

  • Name: Enter the name that the DSN will have so that you can use it in Scriptcase.

  • Description: Add a description for the DSN.

  • Server: inform the server, port and database instance that you will connect to.

4.1 - After informing the data, click on the Next button to inform the user name and password required for connection.

DSN credenciais

  • Login ID: Inform the user to authenticate with the database.

  • Password: Enter the corresponding password to authenticate with the informed user.

4.2 - Now, click Next to select the default database.

Default Database

To finish, click Next and finally, click Finish.

Creating a connection to Scriptcase

See below how to create a connection in your Scriptcase project, using the Enabled Driver (MSSQL Server ODBC) and the Azure MSSQL Server database.

1 - Access a project from your Scriptcase.

2 - Click the New Connection icon to create a connection
