SqlConnectionStringBuilder.IntegratedSecurity SqlConnectionStringBuilder.IntegratedSecurity SqlConnectionStringBuilder.IntegratedSecurity SqlConnectionStringBuilder.IntegratedSecurity Property

Definition

Gets or sets a Boolean value that indicates whether User ID and Password are specified in the connection (when false) or whether the current Windows account credentials are used for authentication (when true).

public:
 property bool IntegratedSecurity { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public bool IntegratedSecurity { get; set; }
member this.IntegratedSecurity : bool with get, set
Public Property IntegratedSecurity As Boolean

Property Value

The value of the IntegratedSecurity property, or false if none has been supplied.

Examples

The following example converts an existing connection string from using SQL Server Authentication to using integrated security. The example does its work by removing the user name and password from the connection string and then setting the IntegratedSecurity property of the SqlConnectionStringBuilder object.

Note

This example includes a password to demonstrate how SqlConnectionStringBuilder works with connection strings. In your applications, we recommend that you use Windows Authentication. If you must use a password, do not include a hard-coded password in your application.

Remarks

This property corresponds to the "Integrated Security" and "trusted_connection" keys within the connection string.
