Using credentials from the data mart

When you do not want to store credentials in the context settings, you can set up a prompt to pop up every time you run a report. The prompt lets you enter your username and password from the data mart or database connection.


  1. From the DQ Repository tree view, double-click the context. The Create / Edit context wizard is displayed.
  2. Click Next to go to Step 2 / 2.
  3. Select the Enable prompt check box.
  4. Keep the environment columns empty. By default, four * symbols are displayed for the password.

  5. Click Finish.
  6. Run the report. The prompt pops up.
  7. Enter your username, password, and click OK.
    The analysis or report runs successfully.
