Requires configuration of thing with Windows authentication

Hi All,

Without DB username and DB Password, can configure a thing. Which means in SQL, Through Windows Authentication i can access DB. I Dont have any access or user credentials with SQL Server authenticaton. Is there any way to configure a THING and establish a connection between thing and DB?

Hi @Muthu_chithira.

 

The jdbc driver defines the access allowed and as far as I know, only SQL Server authentication is supported.  For that reason, ThingWorx does not support Windows authentication. 

 

You may want to talk with your DBA about setting up a SQL Server account for the database you need to connect to in order to create the needed connection from ThingWorx.

I'd go with no, sorry.

Not sure if you have specific security rules that won't allow you to set up a DataBase Thing, but permissions and pre-built queries/views/procedures should be able to cover your scenarios.
