OracleConnectionStringBuilder.IntegratedSecurity Property


Gets or sets a 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).

Namespace:   System.Data.OracleClient
Assembly:  System.Data.OracleClient (in System.Data.OracleClient.dll)

public bool IntegratedSecurity { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

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

This property corresponds to the "Integrated Security" key within the connection string.

The following example converts an existing connection string from using Windows Authentication to using integrated security. The example works by removing the user name and password from the connection string, and then setting the IntegratedSecurity property of the OracleConnectionStringBuilder object.


This example includes a password to demonstrate how OracleConnectionStringBuilder 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.

// You may need to set a reference to the System.Data.OracleClient
// assembly before you can run this sample.
using System.Data.OracleClient;

class Program
    static void Main()
            string connectString =
                "Data Source=OracleSample;User ID=Mary;Password=*****;";

            OracleConnectionStringBuilder builder =
                new OracleConnectionStringBuilder(connectString);
            Console.WriteLine("Original: " + builder.ConnectionString);

            // Use the Remove method
            // in order to reset the user ID and password back to their
            // default (empty string) values. Simply setting the 
            // associated property values to an empty string will not
            // remove them from the connection string; you must
            // call the Remove method.
            builder.Remove("User ID");

            // Turn on integrated security.
            builder.IntegratedSecurity = true;

            Console.WriteLine("Modified: " + builder.ConnectionString);

        catch (Exception ex)

        Console.WriteLine("Press any key to finish.");
