Database Settings

In the Database Settings window, you can verify the database you have connected. You can also check the credentials, set limits on the Maximum Connection Pool Size, and encrypt the connection.

If you change the database you have connected, your session is no longer valid and the system will sign you out.

Database Settings is available in the Acunetix 360 On-Premises edition only.

For further information, see Overview of Settings in Acunetix 360 and Comparison Between Acunetix 360 and Acunetix 360 On-Premises Editions.
