ODBC as Additional Profile Provider Configuration Guide


Use this guide along with the Data Tab Configuration guide to configure a SecureAuth IdP realm that uses ODBC as an additional Profile Provider.


  • An on-premises ODBC data store

  • Service account with read access (and optional write access) for SecureAuth IdP

ODBC Configuration Steps


1. In the Profile Provider Settings section, select True from the Same as Above dropdown to copy the data store integration from the Membership Connection Settings section for use in profile connection; or select False if that directory is only used for the membership connection.

2. Default Profile Provider: select ODBC from the dropdown if ODBC is to be used as the default profile provider.


  • If another ODBC data store is configured in the Membership Connection Settings section, and True is selected from the Same as Above dropdown, then those settings appear in the Profile Connection Settings (below) and must be modified to reflect the settings of the new ODBC data store.

  • Only one ODBC can be utilized for profile connection.

  • If another directory is selected from the Default Profile Provider dropdown, then ODBC must be selected from Source dropdown in the Profile Fields section for the SecureAuth IdP Properties that are mapped to ODBC fields.
