You can enable this feature only if you’re running LuciadFusion on a Windows machine.

If you want to use Windows authentication to access your SQL Server database instead of the credentials in the LuciadFusion configuration profiles, you must download a compatible JDBC driver for SQL Server.

To download the native driver for Windows Authentication, and configure LuciadFusion to use it:

  1. Download the compatible MSSQL JDBC driver from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=57782.

  2. Execute the self-extracting zip file to unzip the driver to your local file system.

  3. In the LuciadFusion installation folder, adapt the config/com/luciad/fusion/platform/TLfnFusionPlatformApplication64.vmoptions file: add the -Djava.library.path variable and specify the path to the sqljdbc_auth.dll file in the auth\x64 subfolder of the driver installation folder.

To configure the database account to use Windows Authentication, you must adapt your LuciadFusion configuration profiles:

  • Remove both the username and password parameters from the fusion.studio.db section.

  • Add integratedSecurity=true to the url parameter in the fusion.studio.db section.

See Configuring LuciadFusion Studio for more information about the configuration profiles.
