Sql.Databases(server as text, optional options as nullable record) as table


Returns a table of databases on the specified SQL server, server. An optional record parameter, options, may be specified to control the following options:

  • CreateNavigationProperties : A logical (true/false) that sets whether to generate navigation properties on the returned values (default is true).

  • NavigationPropertyNameGenerator : A function that is used for the creation of names for navigation properties.

  • MaxDegreeOfParallelism : A number that sets the value of the "maxdop" query clause in the generated SQL query.

  • CommandTimeout : A duration which controls how long the server-side query is allowed to run before it is canceled. The default value is ten minutes.

  • ConnectionTimeout : A duration which controls how long to wait before abandoning an attempt to make a connection to the server. The default value is driver-dependent.

  • HierarchicalNavigation : A logical (true/false) that sets whether to view the tables grouped by their schema names (default is false).

  • MultiSubnetFailover : A logical (true/false) that sets the value of the "MultiSubnetFailover" property in the connection string (default is false).

  • UnsafeTypeConversions

The record parameter is specified as [option1 = value1, option2 = value2...] for example.

Does not support setting a SQL query to run on the server. Sql.Database should be used instead to run a SQL query.
