Container Manager

Editing Folders Using the Properties Window

The folder name, description, and authentication type for a folder, which is used as the default authentication type for the underlying Containers, can be updated directly from the Properties Window. To start the Properties window you can select the folder of interest and hit the F4 key. You can also right-click the folder icon and select Properties, or press the Properties icon on the main toolbar .

User is able to modify either credentials to log into the server or even the entire connection string. The credentials settings can be expanded from the Connection properties section:
If "Integrated Security" is set to "False" but credentials aren't provided, you will be prompted to enter the authentication type and credentials to connect to databases and servers defined in your Containers at run-time, before code is deployed against all Container databases.

You also enforce Combine to ask for credentials for a Folder by setting "Prompt for credentials" flag to "True".

Please note that when the "Use parent connection settings" option is checked then all connection settings are inherited. Exceptions are "Data Source" and "Initial Catalog" for SQL Databases inside Containers which always override any values from the parent container.

The effective connection string which will be used during run-time is displayed in "Resolved Connection String".

A button at the end of Connection properties string (marked with red arrow) brings a Connection Propeties dialog which allows to modify all properties available for Microsoft SQL Servers.
