Connection Properties Reference

The connection properties in this section are listed alphabetically by the name that appears on the driver setup dialog box or the logon dialog box. The attribute name and short name, which can be used in connection strings, data source files, and .ini file data source sections are listed underneath the GUI name.
Note: The connection properties described in this section configure the connection between the application (through the DataDirect Cloud Driver for ODBC) and the DataDirect Cloud connectivity service.
