Setting specific options


This step of the wizard allows you to set the database name, database alias, and registration options (using the General and Logs tabs).

 

Register Database wizard - Setting specific options - General

 

 

The General tab allows you to set common database registration options:

 

Database name

Type in or use the drop-down list to select the database to be registered.

 

Database alias

Enter the alias to be used to display the database in DB Explorer and SQL Manager tools. By default, a database alias generated by the application has the following format: <database_name> on <host_name[\instance_name]>

 

Font charset

Specify the character set to be used to display data in the grid.

 

CheckBox Login prompt before connection

Enables SQL Manager for SQL Server to prompt for user name and password each time you connect to the database.

 

CheckBox Autoconnect at startup

With this option set, connection to the registered database is established automatically at application startup.

 

CheckBox Refresh objects on connection

This option allows you to enable/disable refreshing objects on connection to the database. It is highly recommended to uncheck this option if your database contains many objects or if connection to the database is slow.

 

CheckBox Show system objects

If this option is checked, SQL Server system objects will be displayed in DB Explorer.

 

CheckBox Create new tab for this database

If this option is checked, the database will be displayed within a separate tab in DB Explorer.

 

Register Database wizard - Setting specific options - Logs

 

 

The Logs tab allows you to set log options for the database:

 

CheckBox Enable log of metadata changes

Check this option if you wish to log metadata changes of your database in a file.

 

Log file

This field is enabled if the Enable log of metadata changes option is selected. Type in or use the btnSaveAs Save as button to specify the path to the *.sql file to store the metadata logs.

 

CheckBox Enable log of SQL Editor queries

Check this option if you wish to log your SQL Editor queries in a file.

 

Log file

This field is enabled if the Enable log of SQL Editor queries option is selected. Type in or use the btnSaveAs Save as button to specify the path to the *.sql file to store the logs of SQL queries.

 

CheckBox Is Unicode

Enable this option to save logs in Unicode. If the option is disabled, ANSI will be used.

 

 

Click the Finish button when done to start working with the newly registered database in SQL Manager for SQL Server.
