  1. In the Database tool window (View | Tool Windows | Database), 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 IBM Db2 LUW.

  3. At the bottom of the data source settings area, click the Download missing driver files link. As you click this link, IntelliJ IDEA 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 Connection type list, select Type 4 (for remote connections). For more information about driver architectures, see the IBM documentation for IBM Db2 LUW (for example, How to determine which type of IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ connectivity to use).

  5. In the Host field, type your server address.

  6. In the Port field, type the port of IBM Db2 LUW. The default port is 50000.

  7. In User and Password fields, type your user credentials.

    To delete a password, right-click the Password field and select Set Empty.

  8. In the Database field, type the database name to which you want to connect.

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