Connection to Amazon RDS MSSQL ODBC

If you do not have the MSSQL Server ODBC driver enabled, check below our documentation on how to enable this driver in Scriptcase for connection.

ATTENTION: If you don’t have a Google Cloud database 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:

ODBC Manager

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

Creating 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.

Selecting ODBC Driver

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

Naming 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 entering the data, click on the Next button to enter the user name and password required for connection.

DSN credentials

  • 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 NATIVE SRV or MSSQL Server NATIVE SRV PDO) and the Azure MSSQL Server database.

1 - Access a project from your Scriptcase.

2 - Click the New Connection icon to create a connection.

Creating a new connection

or access the Database> New connection menu.

Creating a new connection

After that, a screen will appear with all database connections.

3 - Select the Google Cloud connection.

Selecting the database connection

4 - And choose the Google Cloud SQL Server database.

Selecting the database


Enter the parameters for connecting to your Azure MSSQL Server database as follows:

Connecting to the database

  • Connection name: Define the name of your new connection. By default, Scriptcase adds the prefix conn along with the database name.

  • SGDB Driver: Select the MSSQL Server Driver to connect. In this example, we use the MSSQL Server ODBC Driver.

  • SGDB server: Enter the DNS configured in your environment.
  • EX: mssql

  • Port: Enter the port to connect to the MSSQL Server. By default, the port defined is 1433.

  • Database: List and select the database you will connect to.
  • EX: samples

  • User: Inform the user to authenticate the connection to your database.

  • Password: Enter the password to complete the authentication process.

  • Test connection: Click this button to get a response to the Scriptcase request to find out if the parameters entered are correct.

Testing the database connection


Security tab, where the connection encryption settings are defined.

Database connection security

  • Encrypt

    This property specifies whether communication with the SQL server should be encrypted. To enable encryption, you must set this property to “true”. This ensures that data sent between the client and server is protected by encryption.

  • trustservercertificate

    Set to “true” to specify that the driver does not validate the server’s TLS/SSL certificate.

    If “true”, the server’s TLS/SSL certificate is automatically trusted when the communication layer is encrypted using TLS.

  • trustStore

    The path (including the file name) to the certificate’s trustStore file. The trustStore file contains the list of certificates that the client trusts.

    When this property is not specified or is set to null, the driver relies on the trust manager factory query rules to determine which certificate store to use.

  • trustStorePassword

    The password used to verify the integrity of trustStore data.

    If the trustStore property is set but the trustStorePassword property is not set, the integrity of the trustStore is not checked.

  • hostnameInCertificate

    The hostname to use to validate the SQL Server TLS/SSL certificate.

    This property allows you to specify the expected hostname in the SQL server certificate. This is useful to ensure that the connection is only made to the correct server and not to a malicious server that may be using an invalid certificate.

    Note: This property is used in combination with the encrypt/authentication properties and the trustServerCertificate property. This property affects certificate validation if the connection uses TLS encryption and trustServerCertificate is set to “false”. Ensure that the value passed to hostNameInCertificate matches the Common Name (CN) or DNS name in the Subject Alternative Name (SAN) in the server certificate for a TLS connection to be successful. For more information about encryption support, see Understanding encryption support.


Accessing this tab, you can configure which Database items will be displayed on the connection, depending on the owner or not.

Filtering the database connection


It allows the connection to see tables, views, system tables and procedures depending on the items selected by the user. By default, the items Tables and Views are already selected by Scriptcase.

  • Tables: Selecting this option, the tables in your database will be displayed.
    • By default, Scriptcase enables this option.

  • Views: Selecting this option, the views of your database will be displayed.
    • By default, Scriptcase enables this option.

  • System Tables Selecting this option, the system tables of your database will be displayed.

  • Procedures: Selecting this option, the procedures of your database will be displayed.


Allows you to define which tables and owners are displayed.

  • Tables: You can define in this option which tables will be displayed. The configuration can contain a PREFIX%% or name of the tables to display.
    • By default, Scriptcase leaves this option empty.
    • EX:

    Example of using the prefix

  • Owner: Inform the user who sees the tables informed for display.
    • The user must be in capital letters as in the example above.

  • View: Choose whether tables for the informed owner are displayed.

NOTE: By using table filtering, you eliminate unnecessary tables for your project and improves the performance of your database connection.


In this tab, you have access to specific settings for the connection. The settings made in this session impact the data display and application performance.

Advanced database connection configuration

  • client_encoding: Select the encoding used in your database. In the example above, we use the client_encoding utf8.
    • By default, the utf8 charset is set.

  • Decimal Separator: Select the separator type of the decimal records, between comma and period.
    • By default, the point . is selected as a separator.

  • Persistent Connection: Define whether connections will be closed after the execution of your scripts in Scriptcase applications.
    • By default, Scriptcase disables this option.

  • Use the schema before the table name: Define whether the database schema will be displayed before the table names.
    • By default, Scriptcase enables this option.
