Microsoft SQL Server
For more information about configuring Microsoft SQL Server, Windows domain authentication, and user permissions, see How to connect to MS SQL server in the IntelliJ IDEA documentation.
For more information about connecting to LocalDB, see How to connect to SQL Server Express LocalDB in the DataGrip documentation.
In the Database tool window ( ), click the Data Source Properties icon .
On the Data Sources tab in the Data Sources and Drivers dialog, click the Add icon () and select Microsoft SQL Server.
Check if there is a Download missing driver files link at the bottom of the data source settings area. 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.
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.
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.
To ensure that the connection to the data source is successful, click the Test Connection link.
