Microsoft SQL Server

For more information about configuring Microsoft SQL Server, Windows domain authentication, and user permissions, see Connect to MS SQL server.

For more information about connecting to LocalDB, see Microsoft SQL Server LocalDB.

  1. Open data source properties. You can open data source properties by using one of the following options:

    • Navigate to File | Data Sources.

    • Press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S.

    • In the Database Explorer (View | Tool Windows | Database Explorer), click the Data Source Properties icon The Data Source Properties icon.

  2. On the Data Sources tab in the Data Sources and Drivers dialog, click the Add icon (The Add icon) and select Microsoft SQL Server.

  3. At the bottom of the data source settings area, click the Download missing driver files link. As you click this link, DataGrip downloads drivers that are required to interact with a database. The IDE does not include bundled drivers in order to have a smaller size of the installation package and to keep driver versions up-to-date for each IDE version.

    You can specify your drivers for the data source if you do not want to download the provided drivers. For more information about creating a database connection with your driver, see Add a user driver to an existing connection.

  4. From the Authentication list, select the authentication technology that you want to use. The following options are available:

    • User & Password: use your login and password for a database.

    • Kerberos: use Kerberos for authentication.For more details about connecting with Kerberos, see Connect to Oracle by using Kerberos (JDBC Thin Driver).

    • No auth: connect to database by using connection URL only, no authentication is required.

    • Domain credentials: use Windows domain authentication for the connection. For more details about Windows domain authentication, see the Connect to MS SQL server tutorial.

  5. To ensure that the connection to the data source is successful, click the Test Connection link.
